I walked out to feed the quail their treats today and well, my rooster had gotten his a$$ kicked. Like HARD. The hens destroyed his head. Think - freddy krueger just with some feathers. Thats what this poor lad looks like. It looks like most of the damage is around his ear. I don't understand what exactly happened. There were 11 females to 1 male. He was on top of a tree stump shaking when I found him, it was absolutely horrifying. I removed him from the habitat, wet his wounds down generously with vetericin (I wore a fresh new pair of gloves for this), and then proceeded to apply COPIOUS amounts of antibacterial ointment on the wound as gently as I could. I put Baytril in his water with some flavoring (sugar free non-vitamin), and gave him a bowl meal worms for extra protein (next to his game bird food). I brought him inside and am keeping him in a dry, quiet place - in a cage with his necessities and soft paper towels to sleep on, along with his sandbox. He looks pathetic. He ate and drank, but other wise just slept or stood still. He looks defeated. Anyone ever see a male come back from such torture from females? I have questions. 1. Yall think he will pull through? 2. Will he fear females now 3.. Will he breed to the females 4. Will he be able to grow back skin 5. WHY did my females all of a sudden attack him????? I have ONE rooster. ONE. Not two. ONE. he is the sole rooster I have and he is used for breeding. That's it. Maybe they were sick of his sh*t and ganged up on him. Im betting yall will have a better answer though. I need him. Thanks!
