Hi all, So we had our first predator attack (assumed hawk based on the pattern of the injuries) on Saturday, Jan. 3rd. We didn't notice right away because there was not a lot of blood and hardly any feather loss on the gal that was attacked. Anywho, we separated her out on Monday the 5th, and have her indoors in a dog crate with a heat lamp, food, water, etc... That first night we gave her a bath and cleaned the wounds up as best we could. There seem to be two good sized gashes on either side of her tail and one smaller gash on the top of it. One of the side gashes is down to the muscle. We have been applying blue coat to the areas daily and she seems ok. Eating and drinking, her poop appears normal, but she does seem bored. I'm mainly wondering when it will be ok to let her rejoin the flock. Is two weeks too soon? Our main concerns being the cold and risk of infection with rejoining the flock. It's hard to tell how the wounds are doing due to the Bluecoat covering it all at this point. From what I can tell, it doesn't seem to be draining anymore and is less inflamed. I am a nurse, so I'm no stranger to infected people-wounds, but chickens are a different story! Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
