Please help! Two criticaly injured hens from fox bite! - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 

Sad update, the girl with the bitten back passed away last night :( The girl with the bitten neck is getting stronger and can now sort of stand and is holding her head up now so we moved her into the cat cage to prevent her from hurting herself any further. But one of my original girls seems to be highly depressed. I don't think she is coping with loosing all three of the original girls :( Do I just let her grieve? Is there anything to help her? She is off her food completely.

Oh, Tea, I'm so sorry! :hugsThat was a bad injury and you tried your best. I'm glad to heat the other one seems to be improving. An attack is very traumatizing to them and they do become quite bonded. Is she by herself?  Could you cook her up some scrambled eggs or fruit or mealworms, oatmeal?

Our depressed hen has passed away too :( We got home from work and she was slumped dead in the corner. I think the new rescues may have brought in some kind of disease. :(
