    Help, my hen was attacked by a hawk and he tore a hole in her crop. I sewed up the hole in her body, but not her skin and put ointment on it. I am not sure if I should offer her anything now. She is in a dog crate with a heating lamp, but I am unsure of when to introduce food. Thanks in advance.
