Please help me! I rescued 6 battery hens yesterday to add to my flock of four other rescue hens. This morning I went to let them out of the coop as per usual and found two hens missing, a heap of feathers everywhere, one dead hen, one hen slumped under the roost and all the rest of my poor traumatized hens. The fox had somehow ripped the mesh off the door and had a bit of a party.
One of my girls has a pretty horrific wound to her neck and cant stand or hold up her head but has been drinking water and had a few nibbles at her food. The other injured girl has been bitten on her back, she can still walk but sounds as though she is gurgling (like fluid in the lungs) she has eaten a small amount but has not drunk anything. Both girls are tucked up in my laundry now in dark cubbies. I have put iodine on both of their wounds, is their anything else I should do??? Will they survive? Please help!!
