    My hen is doing great--eating, drinking---you would never know she was injured--shes going crazy in the cage and wants out--I want to put her bk w/ the others but her wound is not closed. I dont think the others will pick on her--they are all pretty well behaved and thers only 3 others....Can I put her bk even with this wound being open? i dont see it fully healing anytime soon--the hole is pretty big--i dont see it ever fully covering back up--but who knows......

    Any suggestions would be great!!!!

    Even the most docile chicken will peck at an open wound.

    Putting her back in the coop will expose the injury to dirt and germs.
