    I just went out to put the chickens to bed and noticed what looked like a spot of blood on one of the pullets......then I saw these two:

    she got the worst of it...

    she probably needs some doctoring, too...

    I need all the ideas I can get on what to do with/for them (providing that I can catch them). I've got Terramyacin, but that's about it. Thanks for your help!

    Do you think that fought each other or maybe something else attacked them?

    I don't have any advice expect to clean them up and use neosporin or something like it.... all based on the injuries you find.

    Good luck

    Clean up the wounds and see what damage there is. If there is no large skin wound that is peeled to the flesh, then neosporin is probably all you need.

    The one on the wing, almost looks like what one of my cornish x's look liked when one, just one, pin feather was shreded and leaked all over.
