    Our chickens were attacked today. Two escaped and are safe in the coop. one did not survive. One seems to be injured, no blood but is not standing. Should she go in the coop with the others? We have her in a box in the garage right now.

    I would keep the one not standing separated for the night since she may be in shock or have internal injuries. She may need to be kept warm. If any of the others have open wounds, clean them with weak betadine or soap and water, dry them, and apply neosporin ointment.
