Two days ago I went out to check for eggs and found my 16 week barred rock hen hiding in the corner of the coop. I thought it was strange and once I got close enough to get a good look at her I was shocked. She was bleeding and badly injured. The entire top of her head down to her neck was bare and bleeding. It was like she had been scalped. I must admit I didn't handle it well. My little flock are more than just chickens to me, they are my pets. I immediately separated her from the rest of the flock and gave her fresh water to drink and waited until my husband got home to clean her wounds. She is just awful looking. She has exposed bone and isn't eating although she is drinking. I've been cleaning her with with a vet spray and wrapping her wounds with vet wrap that I got at our local feed store. I truly think she is suffering and I don't think she can recover from the severity of her wounds. I've called every vet in our area and none of them deal with birds. We are more than 100 miles from the nearest vet that sees chickens. I think she needs to put down and it's breaking my heart. I have no idea what to do next. I currently have her in a cage in our mudroom. She such a sweet girl...she even still tries to chirp when I talk to her just like she's always done.
