Hi All- I'm a new member today, but I've been reading info on this site for 1.5 years. I've never really needed any specific info until today. I had a 1 y.o. Wyandott hen get attacked by a Cooper's hawk yesterday. I thought it was a fatal attack as all I found was feathers and a large hunk of skin left. This morning I found the hen outside her house with a devastating wound on her lower back. I brought her inside, caged her, cleaned the wound with saline and covered the 4x4 inch wound with Neosporin. She does not appear particularly distressed. She's standing and was walking around when I found her. She has not consumed any food or water that I know of since I found her, nor has she voided. The wound has surprisingly little blood involved, but the skin is completely gone. The hawk's talon's appear to have just ripped away a large patch of skin, but hopefully did not actually puncture any organs and although the fatty layer under the skin is visible there does not seem to be any muscular damage. My question is this- can she survive this injury? Is the wound likely to close up considering its size? If anyone can offer some advice I'd appreciate it.
