thisismy first chicken fight ive had to dealwith . i was in the bath so i can onlyguess but it sounded like mr wooster and his girl saphire got attacked by the top hen wilma and for the first time ever mr wooster fought back. mr wooster has injuries to the insides of his waddles and his comb and the eye lid and markesto his beak his girlsaphire has beak marks on her waddle poor wilma has no feathers left on her head and was bleeding and cowering behind the shed this is the first time she has ever been hurt as she is the boss and ususally bullys everyone else inclusing her own sister betty ! i have managed to catch all in the fight and clean wounds and put saphire and mr wooster back with betty and ruby in the garden but ive put wilma in the"hospital bed as her wounds look a little worse and since she was scared i thought a night of quiet would do her some good. my question is how long should i keep her seperated .... untill she heals or untill the feathers start to come back? i shecked on her today she was a little weary but happy and eating treats. i am wondering if this has been brooing for a while as the girls and mr wooster get atacked everyday by wilma showing dominence but nothing "bad" just chasing and the odd feather pull . even her sister betty who is her main helper and loves to join in the fight mode has been changing sides and sleeping with mr wooster instead and i have knoticed more injuried on the waddles than normal. is this a change in leadership or a push to wilma to stop being so nasty and calm down?
