Hi there everyone, I haven't posted for a while but today one of my hens (her name is Chirp, her sisters are Herp and Derp) managed to hide while everyone else got put back in the run, and when I let the dogs out they got to her. I realized within a minute or two that they were too quiet and went out in time to catch them in the act. Luckily the dogs weren't being super violent, and happily backed off. I don't think she's badly hurt, just stressed out. Chirp was in shock for a while, just laying there, and I was sure something was seriously wrong, despite not being able to see much in the way of actual external injury. I took her in the house and shut her in our bathroom with some water and a little nest box made from an old (clean) cat litter tray with some towels inside. She has a tear in the skin on her chest, at least an inch and a half long. The muscle is showing through underneath but she is hardly bleeding at all, and the muscle looks fine. Chirp is perking up now that she's realized she's safe, but I'm wondering what the best way is to care for her injury. Does she need stitches? My first thought was some antibiotic ointment and then some medical tape to hold it closed, but I don't know if she'd leave it alone, and I'd need a second person to help as she is out of that just flopping into my arms stage and would certainly struggle, perhaps hurting herself worse. I know you can use super glue on wounds to hold them closed... what's the best thing to do about this? Should I just leave it alone and keep her quiet to see if it will heal? Thanks everyone! I'm as freaked out as she is and our dogs are definitely in the dog house for this one.
