Hi everyone. Any advise for me please..... One of my little hens was attacked by something today (cat? Dog?) found it about two hours ago covered in blood and missing all.its feathers along her back and most of her skin on the back of her neck. We phoned the vet who recommended purple spray which we got and applied. We've put her in a crate and we're keeping her indoors in a nice dimly lit quiet room with some water and food. She has her eyes closed but is breathy nice and steadily. Anything else I can do? Should we try and nurse her back to health or are we fighting a loosing battle? I'm now starting to think that maybe my little chicken has been henpecked? My chickens are approx 28 weeks old and two of them have recently started laying, one for the last 3 weeks And the other for about a week. As my hens mature, would they start a pecking order or would that have been established already? My hens are all from the same brood, have always lived together and have always seemd to get along with no problems. The reason I'm thinking this now is that I find it very odd that my chicken was attacked by an animal now when they have been free ranging for ages with no problems and we have three very good chicken guard dogs roaming around all the time as well as humans. I really want to figure out how my chicken became so badly injured so I can prevent it from happening again. Thanks in advance for any advise.
