    We have 17 chickens that we let free range (they are about 7 months old), and recently one got attacked by a fox. We managed to scare the fox away before too much damage. One of her wings was badly injured. She seems like she'll be fine, but the rest of the chickens now keep pecking at her, like they don't want her around anymore. Any advice? Will they eventually accept her back into the flock?

    Chooks are omnivores and blood thirsty [​IMG] keep the injured one away from the rest of the flock do not allow them together without a divider or supervision or sadly she could be eaten [​IMG]. when the wing has fully healed and there is no evidence of injury slowly re introduce her back to the flock
