    My poor sweet Buff Brahma Pat is always being beat up by the other chickens, so I keep her isolated with a couple of others sweet hens. Today my rooster, Poppy, flew out of the big pen and attacked Pat taking out one of her eyes (blood and vitreous fluid coming out). I have eggs boiling and a cup of plain yogurt for her, and I put her in a pen all by herself. It is warm here so flies are a concern.... help?!?!?

    well she wouldn't be the first chicken to lose an eye. others have lived through it before. hopefully she will too.

    your doing the right thing, keeping her seperate. you may want to wrap her in a light cloth if she seems to be going into shock. i hope someone else chimes in with more information for you.

    good luck [​IMG]
