    I went home on my lunch hour to check on my chickens as usual and my oldest girl was off to herself and looked like this?!

    Someone i know had something that looked very similar, turned out that the rooster had decided to corner the hen and pecked her head silly. She is a pure white hen but by the end of it her whole head and down her neck was red with blood. Needless to say the rooster wasn't around too much longer after that....

    Thanks for the info she still seems to be doing well she is alert and everything. I have her isolated in garage since she can't see but I am concerned since she still refuses food and water. We will see..
