I have two Dominique chickens. When I went out to the coop yesterday, the dominant one had attacked the other one. There was blood, and some of the chicken's comb and a small to medium chunck of where the beak meets the head was missing. I applied an antibiotic ointment to the injured areas and put her in a dog crate in our mudroom, with fresh food and water of course. I want to try to take care of the injuries myself if possible, as vets are so expensive. Three questions: 1) how to care for the injured bird, 2) is it safe to put her back in the coop when she's better, or do I have to try to find another home for her? and 3) is it normal for a dominant hen to attack those under her -- what might have caused it? (they have been "cooped up" in recent weeks because we keep getting heavy snowfalls in the northeast, but have always had adequate supply of food and while the water does freeze, I change it often, so they have access to non-frozen water at least once a day) Thank you so much for your help.
