First, I want to thank all of you for your so very helpful posts on how to help an injured bird! One of my Buffs got attacked by a bird of prey - I actually saw it happen so I ran out with my gun - bird of prey ran off and my buff was still breathing, though bloody. Turned out she had a few cuts to her comb/eye and two 2 inch open rips out of her skin on her back and all the back feathers gone - surprisingly, nothing "serious" (like organs) seemed to be punctured though she was in shock and couldn't walk right. I think my Buff was so feathery that the bird of prey had to spend too much time with feather removal! He never did get any satisfaction . . . After much diluted peroxide, saltwater washes, and lots of homemade salve, she is fully recovered and her feathers are now regrown such that she is warm and no skin/scabs are showing. Now, I have put her back with the others but they will not let her in the coop, near the feeders, etc. and they are so mean!! It's amazing how mean they are . . . and how bully-able my Buff is. Of course all this one-on-one time with Buff has made it so that she wants to follow me around and hide behind my pant legs and she doesn't want to "be" a chicken! She waits by the front door or the pen door and seems to spend all her time avoiding the other chickens/guineas. How long should I expect this? It has been 4 days. I feel bad that she is now an outcast after being separated from the flock for several weeks. Thanks for any help!
