I have an injured hen that I have been caring for and she is doing very well -enough that I just caught her coming up the basement stairs. Her flock doesn't want anything to do with her and she is lonely. I don't believe I can get her back in the coop before the impending winter, so I was thinking of making her a pen in the barn and trying to get one of the other hens to stay with her there until spring, when hopefully they can be integrated back in the flock. What do you think? I realize now that I should probably have culled her the day of the injury- would have saved me a lot of stress- but it's too late now for that. Thanks for your ideas.
