I made a post the other day about an injured hen. She was attacked by a dog. At first, she didn't seem to be that bad. Minor back injury (missing feathers/skin), but it was healable with Blue Kote. Well NOW she won't up to eat or drink. I gave her another egg this morning, and she didn't touch it. She was up and moving around yesterday...even laid an egg in her kennel. I don't know what to think. She tried to stand earlier but lost her balance. I did notice she was limping some yesterday, so that could be it. But I don't know why she hasn't moved all day.
Now my injured hen won't eat....

Thank you!! I was finally able to get her to drink some last night. And I put some chicken feed in her cage and she picked at it, and drank on her own! My biggest concern right now is she has a hard time standing. I'm not sure if she has a damaged leg and wing on one side or if it neurological. At first, she seemed ok, but the next day, she started favoring one leg, and her wing on the same side was/is droopy. I don't think anything in the wing is broken, and I can't see anything swollen. But, I will remember to to give her some soft, watery food in a syringe if I have to. Thank you!
