    My older girls attached my barred rock :( help. What do I need to do? As far as I can see its a bad flesh wound. I couldn't see much so I had to give her a bath. I can try to get a better picture but I didnt wanna stress her out any more. I moved her alone in a box with a blanket underneath her to keep wound clean.... should I use that blue wound stugf or just let it heal on its own? How long until I can put her back outside? Ugh any help/ advice is greatly appreciated thanks.

    Welcome to BYC! I would recommend to post your problem in the emergency and diseases section.

    The bluecoat will cover up the fact that she's wounded from the other birds, they won't peck at the blue it's not appetizing like red is. But if she's low enough in the pecking order that the other birds already did that, you should keep her separate for a little while anyway... it'll be easier to keep the wound clean and make sure it's not getting infected if you just keep her away from the others for a while. If it's more than say three days that you have to keep her separated, go slow with the reintroduction unless of course she's isolated in view of the other chickens...
    Welcome to BYC and post in the emergency section for more responses... More pics will help to, good luck.
