I came home to a chicken massacre today. 1 roo and 2 hens dead, 1 badly injured. 4 safe, and 1 missing (although I'm almost positive she flew over the fence). The injured one was standing in the garden when I found her. She seemed to be in shock...the back of her neck was completely removed, and I could see her entire neck. The skin was split and just kind of hanging there. However, she could hold her head up just fine, and seemed to be moving it around fine, although she wasn't doing alot of moving due to shock. I picked the ants off of her while she stood there still. I watched her walk to the coop, slow but fine. We have her inside the house, in a dog cage with some hay and a fan. I poured some hydrogen peroxide on her neck. We have water with gatorade in it to provide electrolytes. We dipped her beak in it but she doesn't seem to be interested. I read that hard boiled eggs help too, but i know she won't go for that quite yet. Will this heal without having to wrap the neck somehow to put the skin back where it belongs? Can I just clean it daily with hydrogen peroxide (providing she lives through the night), and keep it wrapped with gauze or something? It's 12:30 am now and I plan to take her to the vet ASAP in the morning, but I don't want to spend the money doing that if there is little or nothing a vet can do. I've looked through this forum a bit and it seems like a lot of folks say that chickens heal very well and very miraculously on their own. It's the behavior that is throwing me off, I guess. Anyways...any help or advice would be awesome. I'm feeling pretty positive about it after hearing some crazy survival stories, but I don't want to get my hopes up, and i don't want to have to pay a vet $40 just to tell me to put her down.
