Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.

Well, I got this about 5 minutes too late. I have already given her the antibiotic water. I was able to pack the wound with antibiotic cream. She was very alert but didn't seem bothered when I handled her. My girls said prayers for her tonight....hoping for her to heal, now.

Update....she's still stable. Eating and drinking, standing, making contented noises. I let her outside for about 10 minutes today. She did her normal chicken thing. However, she has no skin on the back of her neck in an area a little larger than a quarter. Will the skin grow together? Anyone have a chicken recover from something like this?

I have a quail that was badly injured by a predator. Her chest was laid open with muscle exposed. The injury was quite large. I kept antibiotic ointment on it and it grafted right over. I couldn't believe it. As long as you can keep the neck wound from getting infected I think it would do the same thing. The skin should graft. But she would have a bald spot there.
