    Had my first hawk attack. Got the chick back. From what I can see it has just a small little cut under its one leg. It is making a weird noise when it breaths/peeps. Kind of like a light gurgle puff sound. Sounds like a light hand air pump when pumped.

    Cleaned up the wound and have it separated from the rest. Is there anything else I need to do. Heat lamp? It's fully featherd out

    Air-sac system like perforated by hawks talons. That happens pretty quick. Healing of that usually very quick. Keep chick quite until tomorrow.
