Blamo's injury *Graphic pics*

Just wanted to share this.

Blamo, one of my dear little GLW hens got hurt! I'm not sure how, but once the other chickens saw blood I guess they started pecking. :( When I went out today to give my girls water I noticed blood all over their waterer. I was very alarmed and started looking at all my chickens and saw that blamo was bleeding on her neck and wattle!
Long story short: She is now cleaned up and in the basement in her "recovery bed" and is being completely pampered/spoiled. These pictures are from BEFORE I cleaned her up:

Aw poor girl! She should make a full recovery. You did the right thing by cleaning her up and separating her.
Chickens are attracted to red and will peck at it.

I think she's doing pretty good. Maybe a bit stressed because she laid a soft shelled egg plus a white ringed egg. (Why two?)

Sounds like she is stressed. Sometimes they will lay two eggs if one moves through the reproductive tract too fast. This usually results in one of the eggs being soft.
