I think my picked on hen got mauled by the flock today. I came home and found her barely moving with her skull and inner neck exposed. She will die but how can I help her sooner? Shes standing and taking a few steps but looks woozy. I don't want to cut, snap or chop her neck because of the injury. I'm also a big baby
Are you sure she can't be saved? Can you post a picture?
Sorry. I must be a big baby too, cuz I have tears in my eyes right now....
But I'm here to learn because I know I will one day face something similar.
I read yesterday about using ether (starting fluid) to euthanize a chick. I would think it would work the same.
