    i rescued a hen from a dog attack a few weeks ago and she is doing better but still missing feathers around most of her neck and it appears her left foot is injured as she does not put a lot of weight on it and its difficult for her to walk. she is in a kennel and i let her out randomly to let her get exercise but im concerned that i should do something more for the foot and the neck.

    im a first timer and need help

    thank you

    So sorry about your hen. (And Welcome to BYC.)

    Have you done a through exam on the left foot and leg as compared to her right normal one? Look for differences between the two, feel for lumps, and examine the skin carefully.
