    Ok i sprayed him with some of the blue kite and wiped him with a wet cloth to try to clean him up. He does not want to move around much and hasn't eaten or drank anytging. I gave him some water via bottle and I he drank it and even made some noises. see photos of his eye and damage. Dogs got ahold of him. [​IMG][/IMG]

    I would spray his rear with some Blu Kote and separate him.

    As far as his eye goes, how does it look?

    Who is the bad guy (or girl)? Another rooster or a hen?

    It had some dirt in it and I wiped it out.once I got some water down him he was making some normal chicken noises. But he don't want to move around much. I'm hoping he will keep getting better.

    Make a slurry with starter and water with vitamins and electrolytes via a blender or food processor and put it in a bowl on a counter and lower his beak into it should get him eating. As far as the eye give him a few days to a week and he should be good.
