Help! One of my hens was attacked by our dog. He has NEVER shown interest in the chickens before and she must have flown over to his side of the fence. I thought the hen was killed only to find that she wasnt. The back of her neck is skinless and the upper part of her shoulders are exposed. She is alive, walking, pooping but appears very injured. Not sure what to do. At the moment she is in a dark box in our garage with clean bedding. I put some neosporin ointment on her neck and exposed surfaces. I am not sure if we should put her to sleep (i shutter to think and could NOT do it myself) or what?? Help!!!
