    This chicken is about 5 months old.

    Got attacked by a dog.
    A friend brought it to me because i save injured/sick chickens

    Its back was compleatly skined showing the meat and tendons

    I cleaned out the would with antibacterial scrub
    Put antibacterial spray and ointment on the wound.
    Wrapped it in gauze and medical wrap.
    And gave it a penicillin shot.

    When it came it wasnt moving and comb was very pale.
    About an hour ago it got up and started walking, and ate and drank

    Im hopeful for it

    But What gender

    Im thinking girl

    Pretty girl. She may be a bit younger than 5 months. She will recover well. Her age is on her side too. Happy healing vibes coming your way.

    Great job, Steph!
    I agree, she is younger than 5-months, more like 3-months max.
