Chicken may be going into shock

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

We have a hen who was attacked by something(I'm thinking a possum, since we have caught 5 in the past several months) and she may be going into shock. She is huddling in the tub we have her in and just standing there, and I have not seen her eat or drink. We do not have gatorade or powerade for electrolites and I was wndering if there was anything else I could do to prevent her from going into shock.

The LORD is my Light and my Salvation, so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my Fortress, protecting me from danger.
Psalm 27:1

I would take a while to get the supplies.But i would highly recommend Crop feeding her.I use a 60cc Cather tip syringe that i got from Tractor supply and Aquarium tubing.Chickens that go off food and water for a few days will die.
