Hello! Yesterday I found my young white leghorn hen panting and sitting on the ground under her coop. Upon inspection I noticed she had a wound on her skull right behind her comb on the back of her head. I took her in to the house to cool her off (its 90 degrees here) and sprayed the wound with Vetricyn and applied some neosporin. I kept her in a pen inside the house all night. Now this morning I noticed when I set her on the floor, she is having trouble balancing. When she walks she stumbles a bit and puts her wing down for balance. Could there be some kind of internal damage causing this?
