When introducing my Silkie Chicks (3) to my Amberlink (4) flock one of my Silkies was attacked. They were only together for about 3 1/2 hours and I had checked up on them multiple times. I am guessing Henrietta was cornered and attacked by multiple of my Amberlinks. She has no more skin of her neck and I think her skull is showing. I have been spraying it with antibacterial spray and plan to put Neosporin on it tomorrow. She has been separated from all other chickens and I have removed that rest of my Silkies from the Amberlink run. How can I prevent infection and hopefully help this pullet heal? All she wants to do is lay down but she did eat some scrambled eggs I made her and sometimes leaves her shelter for a walk around her run.
