Hi everyone! New to BYC. We have had our chickens about 4 months now and never had any problem with predators until today. A stray dog got into our coop this morning. We saw the dog running off, and the chicken looked to be dead. We picked it up and it perked up. I looked it over and didn't see any blood, just some missing feathers. All day I have been checking on it, and it has remained lethargic. I checked it out again more carefully, and found raw skin and missing tail feathers. I also discovered the bite marks on the tail.
My question is...is there anything we can do for the chicken? Are we going to have to put her down? If she does have to die, can we eat her meat, or would it be unsafe because of the unknown condition of the dog?
Thanks for any help!!!!!!!!!!
