Reintroducing her while moving the birds into their new home which will therefore be "neutral" territory is a good approach from my experience. You may still need to keep a close eye that the two new hens don't attack Wounded Girl.

so you choose carefully where you're going to put your next couple of "deposits" - seeds and fertilizer in one drop...

I would have thought that would be too thin, and I find "tin cans" rust really quickly, whereas galvanized sheet metal has coped well in our wet climate. I went and took a picture - I'm using the full depth of the pallet, cutting it off at the first "stringer" and in-filling any gaps that dirt would fall out of on the front face. Then I fit salvaged 2x4 into the gap between the front and back of the pallet, and that's what I've screwed the bracket to. These things are heavy and solid and I can stand on the edge if I need to. With the exception of a little hardware, they're free, but a lot of labor. I even re-use nails from the skids I take apart for the infill bits, so I've only needed to use a few new ones.
Old drinks cans cut up?
