I have a cochin cross pullet who was attacked by a dog today. She is missing all of the feathers AND skin from her back, top of her wings, and neck (on the top side) I can see her spine (though is not exposed) I thought about putting her down immediately, but she was still very alert. She does not have any muscle injury that I can see and there was very little blood. So, I rinsed her off in the sink and then doused her with an antibiotic spray (blue lotion for use on dogs and horses, I hae used it on chickens in the past with no probems) I then put ointment all over her and stuck gauze squares all over her exposed skin. She is in a crate in quiet barn. When I was doctoring her, she did try to run away. Amazing to watch a bird I could almost put in the pot to cook run away. Does she have any chance of recovering with such extensive injuries? I will not post photos, it is pretty gruesome, but to reiterate all feathers and most of the skin missing over the back and wings and neck. This happened about 3 hours ago. I will go back and check on her here in a couple of hours and see if I can some electrolyte solution down her if she is still sternal and alert. I was just wondering if anyone has had chickens this badly injured recover. I have had some pretty bad injuries (owl digging in right down to the bone, gangrene and subsequent loss of a leg, etc) but nothing this extensive. I am really torn to see if she can make it or put her down, because it will be a long road for her if she can pull through.
