Can anyone tell me what kind of gashes these are? I’m not sure if something got ahold of her or the rooster did it to her.

Hard to see what location those are in...but my rooster did similar damage to my hens but it was on their sides and on her neck/head.

That is on her upper side under her wing but only one side looks like that.

Have you checked the other hens? My rooster had to go because he was really damaging my hens.

I’ve got several roosters but they all are in different lots and the one that hen came out of only has two hens in it and she was the only one that had gashes like that but I’m going to keep a close eye on the other one to make sure he don’t hurt her.

In the meantime, I would separate her , clean the wound and apply an antibiotic cream that doesn’t contain painkiller.

I’ve already got her separated cause I didn’t want him hurting her anymore. I’ve got some original neosporin ointment on her right now.

That’s good, bc it’s not just the roosters that will hurt her but the other chickens could peck at the wound and make it worse.

we have a extra cage for hurt chickens and broody hens so we put her in that extra cage by herself until she heals.
