The drake is clipped. I was going to leave the females so they could fly away from the drake if needed. We have a lot of land so it's not a problem if they fly around. They are in separate pens now. Eventually I will let them free range. Should I clip the females??
Speaking of rough chickens, OMG. Just had our first injury this week and it is horrendous. I'm guessing a young rooster started it and when the others saw blood, they just pounced on her. Poor girl. I feel so sad for her. Keeping her in the house at night and day pen. She's eating and moving around real well but just looks awful. I'm giving her tetracycline in the water and topical antibiotics. She's got a long way to go
Chickens can be quite vicious and when they see weakness or an injury it can easily end in death. Sorry for your hen....
My female goose was torn up by our Roo, aka dinner, when she was about half grown and he ripped a huge chunk out of her neck. I thought there was no way she would make it as it looked so bad. We kept her in our tub and kept her wound clean and coated in antibiotic ointment and amazingly she pulled through. She is also the sweetest goose ever. See my picture? She is quite the cuddler.
So don't give up. Sometimes they can survive pretty bad injuries. Just be really careful in reintroducing her to your flock. Maybe a pen inside your chicken run. Put her inside and gauge how they all act around each other. They could possibly have forgotten she was a part of their flock and they could try attacking again.
