dog attacked hen, injured,help please!
Yesterday a neighbours terrier got one of my hens. I thought it had killed it as I saw it was pretty badly mawled at its back end. When I'd eventually got rid of the dog I went to look for the hen again and it had gone. We hunted the whole garden but she had vanished. However she has just appeared this morning and is with the others. She has lost all her tail and has a nasty wound at her rear end. She is walking, but slowly and appears to be eating/drinking. I am concerned that her wound may become infected. What does anyone recommend?
