Hen after dog attack
Do the best you can. If she is eating OK then she may recover on her own. HERE IS MY VIEW ON QUALITY OF LIFE. Approximately 4 months ago a neighbors dog attacked one of my hens. ( his dog got loose as his children were watching him.) I had doubts she would make it. DID NOT LOOK GOOD.... But she pulled thru.. Only bad thing resulting , is she is now blind. Still has her eyes, but suffered brain or spinal cord damage. I feed her and she eats as long as I put food right in front. I think she can smell. She will be this way until she naturally expires. I am not Dr. Kevorkian. I let nature take its course. If you raise chickens and eat them, then it may be the choice to make this one next. I don't eat my chickens, but do go to the grocery store for them. I also stop at KFC.
WISHING YOU BEST.

I KNOW you can do it keep up the good work , a blind hen is not to hard to keep, i just had one, but I fixed her up with tons of eye vitamins and some cod liver oil in bread every night & she can see much better now, so you can try that ,but my girl just likes hanging around her nest box & loves all her special treats because she is our special hen , so it wont be hard, just a small space will work ok for your hen & she will be ok for her life time, we dont kill or eat our birds ever , and im sure this will all work out for your hen also, so no worries im sending you all best wishes for your hens full recovery, I know you can do it...!!! take care & good luck
