Sometime last night or early this morning, something got into our coop. I had 14 (month old) chicks in the coop and we heard the dogs barking this morning. When I went to check I was missing 3 and one was dead on the coop floor. I was running late for work so I wasnt able to fully survey the area and chicks. Well when I got home this afternoon I notice one of the chicks was hurt. She walks around like shes fine, not sure if shes eating or drinking though. I noticed that some of her feathers were sticking up and when I went to lift her wing I noticed blood start dropping down my arm. Im not sure what happened, if maybe a coon tried to bite her or what. Under her wing it also looks like it was either skinned or feathers just pulled out. I cant really tell. What can I do to help? How do I clean it and make the blood stop? It seems to bled only when I lift her wing and mess with it.
