    Please help "Lil momma" was injured some how. Not sure if it was one of our dog or something else. Attaching pictures. What do I do? Is this something that I can fix? It's on the right of her under her wing but more near the breast.

    I'm not sure what I'm seeing but it doesn't look good, that might need stiches, I would find a vet or cull her, hopefully someone has a better though on it than me, sorry.

    Welcome to BYC. I would bring her inside, and put some gauze over her wound with some saline or plain Neosporin ointment on it. She may be in shock. How is she breathing? Was she attacked by a predator? It looks like it was near her crop. Offer her some electrolytes and vitamins in her water, and give it with a dropper if she doesn't drink. She probably needs emergency vet care at this point.
