In the Brooder
- Apr 8, 2017
I have a couple of chickens I added to a coop during the night and I woke up to a very terribly hurt hen and the rooster fighting the others. He is hurt as well just not to the extreme. The hen(grey/black) head is very nasty and I can see her skull. It’s A large area that looks bad and I can see about the size of a nickel of her skull. She’s awake and aware, eating and drinking, and moving and walking a bit(she was never really a run around type of gal so I can’t really tell if she’s less active than normal). The male (red/orange) has some missing feathers on his neck and here and there. He bled a little bit otherwise is ok. I think that he’ll be just fine with some time and blu kote spray. The hen however I’m worried about bc of how bad she looks. Any advise on how to treat her?
