I honestly don't know.

I tried putting them under her . She sit for a few minutes and got up and moved beside them. They may all be dead now. What a terrible day but I am thankful that ones still with me and the hen will hopefully heal up good.
Chickens are pretty amazing creatures, had a hen with a horrible injury on her back from the roosters claws. She had a gaping hole in her back. I took one look at her & thought she's never is going to make it. I cleaned it as best I could, dumped the peroxide on like you did & then put a ton of antibiotic ointment on it. Took a sterile pad & some vet wrap & wrapped it. Next morning the hen had managed to get the vet wrap moved & the gauze pad removed & was dust bathing. I took one look at her & said "your going to sink or swim" meaning your going to make it or not I've done what I can. I kept her in the corner coop & pen with one of her female buddies for company & she treated the would herself. If her wound was visible I would spray bluKote on it & then she usually went & dust bathed filling the hole with dirt. Few weeks went by & the thing healed to my amazement. Hope your gal will be strong & heal thru her injuries.
