    hello!! new to BYC.
    my older flock attacked my younger polish chicken. she is now in my bathroom with the skin on her head pealed over her face. i can't see her eyes. it's so bloody and i don't want to touch her. she is breathing. but hasn't lifted her head. she can fluff her feathers still. any suggestions?!?!

    :( I'm not sure how to help. Welcome to BYC, though. I'd guess keep it clean and her def away from the others for now. Sorry

    [​IMG] after reading your description I am as upset about it as you are. Chickens can turn cannibalistic in a flash.
