She was found today trying to hide from the 25 weekers. The bump on the tip of the tail is really bad. She has no feathers left and a very raw spot the size of the half dollar. When I picked her up she cuddled right into me. I offered her food and she quickly ate it up and drank quite well. I have cleaned the wound, put polysporin on it and put her in a cage in the hen house. I have also put her on preventative antibiotics to ward of infection. Have I done the right thing? I have done a search and have gotten contradictory advise. I want our little Dot (barred rock) to do well. I was planning on reintroducing her to the flock when she has completely healed...how do I go about doing this??? I don't want a repeat. She is part of a flock that I have just introduced to the older girls. One group is 9 hens the other is 10 hens and they have been together for 1 week. The younger hens never leave the hen house and when they do go into the run is when we have the pecking issue. Dot was found in the run trying to hide in a corner. Should I just take the 9 younger ones back out and wait a little while longer? What can I do to help them play nice? My BO and Polish are the bullies in this situation and I am not sure what to do with them. I hope someone can help.
