    she has Bramas(spelling) and a neighbours dogs attacked the flock, one Brahma was injured and she is asking on Facebook if anyone knows of antibiotics , etc that may help the hen. She ordered the eggs and incubated them herself and is very attached to her flock.. any expertise would be greatly appreciated and in the meantime Ill have her join this group..
    p.s. she brought the hen in her home as its well below zero here in the maritimes and she made a makeshift sweater so when she lets her back to the flock they won't pick at her. She's worried about infection mostly at this point.
