My hen (Muriel) shares a pen with another hen and a turkey. The turkey (male) has been with them since a baby. They all get along great. This morning I went to feed them and notice that my Plymouth Rock hen was bleeding a little on top of her head on the skin part (sorry dont know the name of the fleshy part) she was kicking one leg, but not getting up, I carried her into the house and put her on a towel and made a nest for her to keep her comfortable. I stopped the bleeding. She's breathing with her mouth open and still not getting up. I offered her some of her food and she ate some from my hand on her own but then decided she didnt want anymore. She doesnt seem to be bleeding anywhere else. She is 7 years old. Does anyone know what might be the problem? or what I should do?
