Chicken got attacked by a raccoon

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, guys please help me. We have 10 chickens and 5 ducks . All were very healthy and used to lay eggs regularly. But last month 2 of the hens got attacked by a racoon. One of them died and the other one is still alive and laying eggs. I have already removed the raccoons with the help of ‘Remove the wild’, wild animal control specialists.  But the problem is , the eggs laid by that hen is not tasty as earlier and also they are having a bad smell too. What could be the reason ?Anyhow,we are not using them now.

It could be your hen that survived the raccoon has an infection. Where were her wounds? How is this hen behaving? Is she eating, pooping normally and active ore hanging around mute on the sidelines with her tail held low?
