    Last night, one of my chickens was attacked by an animal but managed to escape by the time I got there but with a tear in her comb.
    They are really good about getting to their pen at night but last night one slept on a chair in the back yard before I got home to close the gate. Any advice what I can for her comb?

    Thanks, I'm so upset that she was hurt. It is flopping down in front of her face and she is really timid right now. It took her half the day to come out of the coop this morning. I hope she will be ok as well.

    Quote:Hello and [​IMG] ! I would separate her for the night and put her in a darkened room so that she can rest. Maybe give her a heat lamp if she likes it. Give her some electrolyte water and maybe a few treats here and there. Good luck! [​IMG]
