    Our farm has been attacked several times in the last two weeks. When we returned,one of my large red hens had been attacked. Her shin had been ripped from her body, from her back and down under her wing. I found her hiding in the flower bed. I took her into our home, cleaned her with watered down betadine and have been tending to her for a week now. She stands, eats and drinks water. She limps a bit. My question is......Will her skin heal? [​IMG]
    this wound is also under her wing. The dark color is from the betadine wash.
