    My chicken was attacked by my neighbor's huskie dog last night and I'm not sure what to do. I've put on bag balm and neosporin and have flushed it out with bacitine. I seperated her from the other chickens and now she is in a large dog crate with a towel, hay, water, chicken feed and boiled eggs. I want to do more for her, but I'm not sure, iff you guys have any ideas I would be very grateful. her name is babbs, she is my favorite and not even full grown yet.

    You are doing all that you can, the rest depends on whether there are internal injuries and just how badly she went into shock. Chickens are tough critters. Be sure though to watch for fly eggs laid around the wound and remove them if you see them.
