A hawk just attacked one of my hens. I'm only seeing a small cut on her comb. She's acting ok. I'm worried she may have internal injuries, the hawk had her pinned to the ground and there are quite a few feathers on the ground. It's supposed to be cold (~40F) tonight. Should i take her inside for the night?

How old is the hen?
I think she'll be fine. Is she acting different?
If you want to bring her inside it wouldn't hurt. I probably would if she was in shock or scared.

I gotta go to bed but hopefully someone more experienced can give you more insight.
