one of my hens was attacked by a racoon two nights ago, the wound is on her back between her wings extending into her body cavity, i have been contenplating putting her down, it is quite severe. Maggots are now crawling in/out of the hole in her back (1/2"), i beleave maggots only eat dead flesh, so are they helping? or will they eat healthy flehs once the dead flesh is gone?? is this a sign that it is time to end her suffering? she has 4 chicks who have kept her attentive and alert through this ordeal, i almost put her down right when i found her as she was listless and wouldnt move, but as soon as i put her with the babies she perked right up and started clucking and walking around again and mothering them. any help appreciated, this is my favorite 4 year old hen, as much as id love to save her id rather her not suffer unneccisarily.
