    I am devastated, my chicken was attacked by a dog today. She is a lavender orpington and is now missing most of her back feathers which I am not too concerned about. But, her neck is in bad shape! most of her skin around her neck is gone. (there is no skin to even suture back together) I have had chickens that have been attacked in this same matter but the injuries have not been this severe. The wound has been cleaned and she is in a dark, quiet and warm place. I have given her electrolytes to drink. I'm not sure what else to do. Thanks for your suggestions.
