    How did the raccoon scare it? I am assuming the raccoon didn't hurt the chicken?

    Uhm well the raccoon was on top of the chicken coop (while it was raining) and I think she fell trying to run out and she was stumbling as she was walking.However afterwards she started to hop on one leg and the area around the hole was like...how do you say it-Glued together with probably pus.

    If you have some antibiotic cream I would put some on it..and watch it carefully. If it gets worse take her to a vet.
