Okay, about a month ago I had 7 white rock hens who picked on my dark cornish hen Moe. Moe wasn't the first chicken to be vent pecked, but she was the first one that was still alive when I found her. I built a temporary stall for her in the basement complete with straw, food, water, treats and a nesting box. Her wound looked really bad, but with regular cleaning it has healed. She was on Terramycin for 2 weeks followed by electrolytes for 1 week. She has regained some strength, and I would like some advice on what to do with her now. My concerns are: Weight: She has lost so much weight that you can't feel her breast meat anymore. I'm afraid that her weight loss is a result of her wound and may be an infection or something that I don't know how to treat. Feathers: Since she has been in the basement she really doesn't have the thicker winter feathering to keep herself warm. Food: She doesn't seem to eat much. In the month that she has been in the basement she has yet to empty her 7 lb hanging feeder once. She does eat some of the scratch grains and other treats I put in for her. Yes she does get limestone grit, and after the anitbiotics were finished I gave her oyster shell too. Time: I'm hosting a potluck on Monday night, and my husband wants her out of the house by then. If she may be sick with something else then I know I shouldn't introduce her to my remaining 2 red star hens. The white rocks who did this also tried to attack me and I sold them shortly after so they're no longer a threat. I'm considering culling, because I don't think she's getting much better, it's not right to keep her like this and I don't know anyone else who would take her in. At this point she's more like a pet than a egg / meat source, and so I'm also wondering how to humanely euthanise her (i.e. no guns, axes, broom handles or slit throat tricks). Any suggestions on what to do (besides not getting attached in the future)?
