One of my hens was attacked by a predator today
I thought she had been taken from the front yard
I found large areas of feathers In the oceanfront yard leading toward bushes.
Later in the day she reappeared, very submissive. I picked her up and found a large area of pulled feathers and down, right down to the ribs, mid back, with small red/bleeding
She is resting in my AC house. She will take water from my finger but I am afraid to put her back in the coop with the other 7 until she is better
Any treatment I should do to the back or just take care of her and wait and see if she survives this attack.
Sad for me, a helpless creature and my first flock
