Hi, my hen Bobby was attacked by something last night. I went out with a flashlight when I heard the attack and must have scared whatever it was off.
She has a HUGE chunk bitten out of her back through several layers of muscle. I have rinsed out the wound, but I'm not sure what else I can do. Is it really safe to give her aspirin?

any other ideas?
thanks

I've never had to experience anything like that, perhaps after washing it out, you could place all the tissue/muscles back the best way you can and put neosporin on it and wrap it snug like and give her 1 crushed aspirin in 1 quart of water. Do you have any antibiotics? You should probably put her in a crate and keep her in the house and away from the other birds. Hope she recovers for you.
