I found my one year old hen stumbling into the coop last night after a day free ranging. Something tried to bite off her neck and succeeded in removing the top 50% of the skin from the base of her skull down to back/wings. The wound has a deep pocket to one side and had fly eggs in it. She's indoors and I thought I got all the eggs but this afternoon I have tiny maggots. As far as I know she has not touched her food and only begrudgingly drinks tiny amounts when I put the cup to her beak. I flushed all the maggots I could find with the hose but am I just torturing her for nothing. Anyone have a hen that seemed to have given up actually survive? Ditto with maggots- am I actually going to be able to keep up on them or will they keep coming until she's dead?
