Hello.. it has been awhile since I have posted here ... a raccoon got into my coop last night and hurt one of my birds.. she is alive... it looks like it ripped the feathers and skin off the entire back of her neck.. I cleaned it up.. put some neosporin on it and gave her some baby ibuprofen.. she drinks with a syringe.. she does not want to eat yet... hopefully tomorrow she will.. I am prioritizing water right now so she does not get dehydrated.. she is a very social girl so she is inside my house right now getting pampered. Lol is there anything else I should do to help her heal? Thank you for any help! ♡♡♡

I have never heard of giving a chicken baby ibuprofen, I recently had a similar experience with my chicken. My roosters were the attackers. I cleaned it and put Neosporin on it. My chicken bounced back pretty quickly. Hopefully your chicken will start eating soon. It sounds like you are doing what you can. Good luck.
