6 Week old Chick Attacked by Dog!! Help!!!

  1. So I let my little chicks out of their little "coop" this morning while I was outside doing chores. I made sure my dog was with me the whole time. I gathered eggs from the big chickens coop and took them inside. I was inside for about 1 1/2 minutes. When I came back my dog had one of chickens on its back and was getting ready to finish killing it. [​IMG] [​IMG] I locked the dog up and then examined the chick. Something under its beak is basically torn off. (See Pictures). Something happened to its neck about a week ago and that wasn't from the dog. Is there anything I need to do? Bandage the wound? Separate it? It is eating with the other chicks. Any help is appreciated.

    Separate it so the other chicks don't peck at it, and gently clean it
