So I let my young flock (just old enough to be out of the brooder) out of their run for a little free-range time in my small, suburban backyard. I went inside to refill their waterer and came out to two pullets missing! Beside my house I found the black tail of my australorp, completely with bloody tail stump, and assumed she had been eaten. Lo and Behold, both chickens have returned, and now my Aussie is missing her tail, and there seems to be only a bloody gaping hole where her tail used to be! I'll be washing and disinfecting it of course, and bringing her inside for some personal care, but do you have any more advice, like how to bandage this gore?
