    So I have only one chicken that's younger than all the rest of my (8) chickens, so of course she gets pecked on and teased. But yesterday morning the other chickens pecked her head until she was bleeding pretty bad. I brought her inside and cleaned her up so the bleeding seems to have stopped. She did eat some when she was first brought inside yesterday but has been resting ever sense. She doesn't seem to interested in food right now, but she's getting up and moving around much better than she was yesterday. I know I need to clean her wound again today and try and get her to eat and drink. My question is, what is the best thing to clean her with and is there anything else that can be fed to her by a syringe so that I know she's not starving? PLEASE help asap.
