This is more of a story than anything else but thought I'd just put it out to the world. For some background info, I let my chickens out of their enclosure now that it's becoming beautiful. They're just backyard chickens that eat grass and treats and stuff like that. I need to get more hens, but at the moment there are two roosters and one hen. Anyways, yesterday, I went to go check on my chickens after being gone for a couple of minutes to go do something. Leaving was my first mistake. I went out and called them, the usual. However, I couldn't find one of my roosters, Juniper. I heard him, I just didn't know where he was. I look under the coop, around the enclosure, stuff like that. I finally find him wedged in between two tree trunks and was stuck there. He looks like a whole different chicken, however. He is missing some of his neck feathers and the back part of his comb where it connects from his comb to his head was missing. He was all wet and bloody and I just felt bad for him. I wash off his blood and get a rag and soapy water to clean off the comb. The saddest part was that whenever I touched the exposed parts with the rag, he would grunt and sigh in pain. It was needed, however. I locked the others up holding Juniper and called a relative who also has chickens to see if they have a pen I could use. They did so I asked them to come over while I set it up. We did that, set up a perch for him, and gave him some sustenance. For some free-land chicken and fowl owners, this is common. This is the first time this happened so just thought to share.

If you couldn't find a pen for him, I could lend you a pencil instead.

Remind him to reincarnate as a hen in his next life
