Need Help! My Chicken was attacked by my dog

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My chicken was attacked by my dog yesterday. She has two good size puncture wounds in the neck.  Also, has lost most of her feathers on her back and tail.  It is very red.  We have cleaned her with Dawn and water, packed the holes with neosporin, and sprayed her back with Banixx.  She is not eating or drinking yet.

 

My questions - - How do I get her to eat and drink??  Also, how do I know if she may have an egg bound inside her or would that even happen??  So worried.  Picture below.

We just went through this a few days ago. Start her on antibiotics.  Don't peroxide her.  She will lay her egg.  Keep her wounds clean and dry.  Let us know how she is doing.

Sadly, she just died. Heartbroken. We have to be more proactive and clip their wings so they don't fly over their fenced area again.
