New to this site. I hope I'm putting this question in the right spot. Forgive me if not. We have seven hens they have a nice size coop and also a door where they can go outside into a large kennel size area to roam. We normaly let them out on the farm to go where they want every morning but two days ago something killed one in the middle of the day and all that was left is a pile of feathers and two feet So being worried for them the past two days I have only let them out into the kennel area in case whatever it is came back. Tonight I went up to change the water and gather the eggs and one of the hens has a spot a little bigger than a silver dollar on her back where the feathers are all gone and the spot was red and bloody looking, very raw. They weren't out of food or water. Against my better judgement I'm going to let them out tomorrow because I don't want them to kill her, then again I know there is a chance whatever took the other one may come back. We work during the day so no one is here to keep an eye on them. I feel so bad for her!! Is there something I should do?? We are actually getting rid of them in a couple of weeks they are going next door to live with my in laws 16 chickens but what if she is not healed by then? We have had them since the spring and nothing like this has ever happened. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
