Please Help! Chicken Attacked by Dog

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I came home to find my dog with my production red hen. There's feathers all over the yard. I don't see any visible marks on her. She's still breathing and blinking, but she's shivering.
She's my special chicken, because she was born with a crooked neck. I really want to save her.
Any advice on what I should do?

:welcome  Sorry for the circumstances.  Right now she is in shock.  Put her in a warm, dark, secure space and you may want to provide some electrolytes.  Hopefully she has not sustained any internal injuries and will snap back.  Good luck.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.

Sadly, she didn't make it. Thanks for your help.
