Someone dumped off their two young roosters into our 6' fenced chicken yard Sat. morning between 2am and 5am. The bigger rooster got into it with our 4yr old rooster, Henry. My husband saw it while leaving for work, and broke up the fight. (Both dumped off roosters are in a separate pen until they are claimed or sold. I suspect the owner lives down the road from our farm.)
This evening while we were feeding veggies to our hens and we noticed that Henry's top beak was bloody near the comb. When my husband took a closer look, he noticed that the entire beak is cracked.
Our poor Henry couldn't take any crumbles of graham cracker off my hand or pick up anything off the ground.
I was hoping to try and feed him myself with a feeding syringe from the feed store. I'm not sure what to feed him or how much.
Our oldest son just left for summer camp on Friday and I really don't want him to come home next weekend to find that Henry is gone. He would be so upset. I would rather Henry go while my son is with him.
Henry is so sweet. I hate the thought of him starving to death because of someone who decided to dump their responsibility on our family.
Any feeding suggestions or help would be great.
