    Please help! We had some sort of attack today. One chicken missing. Feathers all over the yard, one injured hen and a couple with roughed up feathers. I am not sure what got them. I had seven BOs, 20 week old. They were out roaming the yard for maybe 45 minutes before I checked on them and noticed the mess. They are all quite skittish now.

    How do I treat the injured one? Missing some feather on the top of the back and is bleeding from a small wound there and she has an open bite wound on the breast. I have separated her from the rest of the flock by using a dog cage. But Kept it in the run.

    I have peroxide and Blu-note and Neosporin.

    Not sure if she is eating or drinking since I just separated her. I will add food and water to the dog cage.
    She doesn't seem to be making much noise to indicate any pain. Just skittish. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Any advice would be great! This is my first time having chickens. I have only had them since March! :(
