    My hen was being attacked by 2 other hens and the rooster. I was able to rescue her. Brought her in and gave her a warm bath to remove poop from tail feathers. She has had raspy labored breathing and isn't eating much at all. She does drink a little. When the other chickens come around she hides in her nest basket and breaths harder. She does shake her head quite a bit. She moves slowly. My fear is they hurt her and will not be able to be saved. Its been 2 days now and she hasn't laid any eggs either.

    If you are afraid that they will hurt her separate her! Either in the coop or in your house, I would also make sure she stays warm.

    She is separated in the barn. She eats, drinks water. She poops a little bit. No eggs for 5 days. Still clicks as she breathes. Started her on a wormer, electrolytes, pro biotic. Can someone tell me what to do please? I've never raised chickens.
