My three free ranging hens were attacked last week...one completely gone...the littlest of course...one untouched...the third and largest of them had a nickel size hole in her back like she'd been stabbed with a BIG beak or perhaps talons. I cleaned the wound...there were actually feathers pushed into her 'meat'...applied Neosporin and then blue kote. I separated her from her one remaining flock sister and she has been lethargic, not eating, barely alive. Last night I put her in the pen with the other...after three days of separation...they got along...no pecking at the wound...when it started to pour rain she got under the coop...all good...when it came time to lock the coop up, she was inside in a nest box...also good. This am my hubby let then out as I leave at 5am. She stood up and seemed to want out...all good. The thing that most confuses me is that IF I can get her to eat anything at all...she will then toss her head around, wipe her beak back and forth and then drop her head pretty much to the ground and it just stays that way. She seldom will lift her head. I have to actually put her beak into the food and then she will peck a few bits then start the weird throwing her head around and wiping her beak again. I am afraid she will starve to death or die of dehydration....any thoughts ??
