Hi all, I have a 2 week old chick that was apparently attacked by a cat I guess....anyway, few feathers out on left wing at shoulder joint and part of wing completely gone from about last 1/3 of humerus...elbow joint and all gone..but about 1/4" of humerus is sticking out....I put him in our brooder alone with food and water....he is eating, drinking and pooping just fine...I have sprayed the wounds with Vetericyn wound and infection treatment. Also he began pecking at his toes and pulled a claw out on each foot....I didn't know if he was lonely since he had been with 11 others before so I brought one of our BB Red chicks in with him and they are doing ok together....the BB does not bother or peck at him. These are my first chickens and I don't know if he is in pain or what to do about the bone sticking out....any suggestions????
