    My 8 month old buff orp hen was ripped opened on her sides by a large rooster that was mounting her & another rooster started fighting over her . He slice her tryin to stay on. She limping & her comb has been ripped. Since its under her wings should I dress it or just pack with antibiotic ointment. Got her inside away from flock . Boys have been given the death sentence! Not the first time been aggressive but never to this degree on injury. And should I give oral meds?

    Dressing the cuts would be very difficult; I would try to just use the Neosporin. Don't know about antibitics -- probably a good idea but I don't know which one.
