So, dog attack, and he chewed on my "head Roo." We got there in time and chicken has minor injuries which I gooped up with neosporin. He's sore today, but seems to be doing well and WANTS to live. After I put the ointment on him, he ran into one of the nesting boxes in the coop. Concerned the other chickens would pick on him now that he is injured, I took some paper and covered the front of the nesting box with paper such that he could still get out if he wanted, but keep him out of sight if he needed to rest. My other two chickens (3 total -- I think they are all Roos) usually sleep on their little roost, but last night slept on the floor of the coop next to the nesting box where the Roo was. And today, even though the sun was up, they stayed next to the Roo instead of getting up. When my Roo finally got up and limped outside, they stayed next to him but didn't peck him. When he lay down, they laid down next to him. Is this common? I thought chickens pecked on injured mates?
