    One of my 7 week old baby chicks got out of the little pen and in with the big ones. The older hens beat her up, when I found her this afternoon, all the skin and feathers were gone from the top of her head and it was just a bloody mess. It looks as if they scalped her. I brought her inside and she is eating and drinking. My question is, do i leave it alone or do I try and clean it up the best I can and put some neosporin on it? Thanks for any advice..
