Seems to be the season for attacks. Our Jack Russell go my favorite hen yesterday as she managed to get outside of her yard. At first we thought she was dead, then dying...she surprised us by perking up and I followed my instincts to just hold her for about an hour where she slept in my arms. I can see puncture wounds on both sides of her head, which treated with peroxide and antibiotic cream. Today she's on her feet and seems string, but I am not sure if she's eating or drinking and do not know what to do about that. She has one eye closed and is favoring the left side of her neck, which is not fully extended as normal. I've kept her separated from the other two hens in my flock overnight and today she wants to be back out in the yard, but I'm still keeping her separated for fear they will peck and hurt her. We have to leave town for this week, visiting family for the holidays and I'm just not sure how to handle her continued care. I"ll probably have no choice, but to have to put with the others. Will they kill her? Any advise will be appreciated. I hate that Im leaving and she's my favorite ( don't tell the others...) I'll be devastated if I lose her. Thank you!
