    It looks like she was scalped! I don't know what breed she is, something from the fighting/ game family. You need to tend to her wound, ASAP, before it gets infected. Flush it with peroxide or rubbing alcohol and then rinse it with water. If you have Bag Balm, it works wonders, but if not, use some Neosporin. Both keep the wound clean, damp, act as a layer between germs and the torn flesh, and help a little with the pain. Try to keep the wound covered with a bandage, if you can. Her greatest threat right now is infection: so keep her isolated, keep the wound clean, give her electrolytes, and watch for signs of infection or shock.
    A lot of hens that have been scalped recover. Mine is the best layer in the flock, and apart from a bald patch, is doing fine. If your girl is one of the fighting breeds, it may very well have been another hen that did this to her. She will not hesitate to harm non fighting breeds, or the rest of your flock. Keep her isolated until you figure out what to do with her.

    Looks like some sort of gamebird mix to me.

    I don't get why knowing the breed is an emergency [​IMG]

    She's some type of game bird, that's about as narrow as I've got. I'm thinking Oriental game, but they're not the best pics.

    thanks for the replys people. much apprecaited. the breed was needed because i needed to ask around iff anyone had lost it on a local website as theyre are a few which have gone missing in my area. her head was grazed/scalped and i had put some thing((ive forgotten the name off the top of my head)) i use on my quail when theyre injured and so far its worked a treat will try to get some clear pics tomorrow (its almost 10:00 here in the uk) when it gets a little lighter. once again many thanks
