Racoon massacre of at least 5 roosted hybrid layers last night. One shocky this morning; husband left near food/water. Found her tonight standing in the sun with the rest of the flock, drooping head/neck, egg and frankly bloody stool nearby. Betadine solution to scalp with exposed skull bone. Also rinsed skin tears around wing joint. Crop is pretty full, looks a bit bruised. Drank sugar water from syringe and dish; refluxed some along with a little grit. Applied fly repellent wound salve and isolated indoors. What next? Thanks for replying.
