So far, I'm taking it day by day. As long as she's acting normally and not worsening, I plan on giving her time and treatment. If she shows any sign of worsening, at all, I will put her down. But for now she's really acting like a fairly normal injured chicken.From the OP's description, it sounds like this chicken is doing just fine. As long as she is eating and drinking and acts alert, I would keep treating her. You can always put an animal down if necessary, but I think all this chicken needs is time. I have seen animals recover from some really horrible wounds.
