I just found my girl Buttercup like this. She is acting completely fine just like her normal self. What do I do? Her ear is completely gone

I went to go close up the coop after my chickens went in to roost. I was checking on them and found her. I haven’t looked around for evidence yet. I’m mainly concerned with what to do with her

Where did you find her?
Do you have local predators?
Do you have rooster/s?
How old is she?
How bad is the bleeding?
Have you ever had something like this before?
If so, how long ago?
How are the other hens?
Are there any tracks or footprints outside?
Isn’t really bleeding. She’s 1 and a half years old. I’ve never had something like this happen before. The other hens are fine.

I just put saline spray on her. Should I still wash her up?
I would try to get the blood off.
She should recover just fine.
Go see if anyone else is hurt.
Do you think another chicken did this or do you think you have some predator out there?
Go look.
