Hello everyone! I have a chick that was with her broody and siblings until she was attacked. I have a feeling a chick pecked her too hard and caused some bleeding and I guess the rest joined in, because mom was pretty content with everyone and then this happened 4 days later. Anyways, she's in the brooder and her back is pretty torn up. I cleaned her up and put some blu kote and neosporin (without pain relief). It's been 24 hours since I've been treating her and she's been eating and drinking with some assistance, so I'm assuming she's going to be fine. I'm still worried because she stands and is interested in eating/drinking, but she won't walk to wherever she wants to go to in order to eat and drink. Here's a picture of the chick after I got done treating her yesterday. Are there any suggestions? Thank you!
