    I have a chick that has been badly pecked on the head by another hen.

    It seems slower than normal and keeps closing its eyes. Also it seems concussed.

    I thought it had been got by a predator as the mother hen lost it in the morning.

    In the evening it turned up again with the rest of her chicks. But its got a small wound just above its eye and one on the back of its head.

    It looks like its been pecked by another hen and it was knocked out cold. I think its been in a daze hiding in the tall grass all day.

    Will it recover? Its walking about.. and keeping up with the others.. but its wobbly and slow.
