    The other night we heard the ladies screaming and came out to find one hen dead and the other hurt, i quickly took the 3 remaining hens in the house in a dog crate one of the 3 hens has some missing feathers and was bleeding, i covered her wound with gauze for the night and when to bed, she is back out side in the coop she is eating and drinking the other hens are not picking on her or anything but she walk around kinda with a slumped neck, she can extend it i have seen it, do you think it because she is in pain, should i seek out a vet to look at her, she is a 10 week old RIR.

    Any advise is helpful we are new to the chicken world and still learning as we go.
