    Rooster attacked by fox - gasping and shock 10 hours later. Help! the

    Yeah, I hesitate giving him food that way, given his breathing difficulty. Still haven't gotten him to eat anything, but he's really interested in water. I saw him fluff his feathers last night which was the first time he's done something 'normal' since the attack, but he is still passing out...

    Rooster attacked by fox - gasping and shock 10 hours later. Help! the

    Yeah, we think he is in pretty rough shape. But he hasn't gotten worse, and we've been able to care for him the last few days. We don't want him to suffer needlessly, but we don't want to cull him if there's a chance he will heal up. What can we do for his wry neck? Can a wry neck from injury...

    Phew - that took a while! My first YouTube post lol! I took two videos: -How he drinks water; you can see his neck in this video: -What it looks like when he passes out, then wakes back up: What do you guys think? Does he look too bad to make it? We don't want to have to cull him, but I...

    Rooster attacked by fox - gasping and shock 10 hours later. Help! the

    Thanks for everyone's responses! I will get some pictures in the very least, maybe a video if I can. We did call a few vets, but due to a law in Georgia, only clinics with a specific certification in exotic birds (yes!) can treat chickens. The closest vet to us that can treat him is an hour...

    Rooster attacked by fox - gasping and shock 10 hours later. Help! the

    Sorry I haven't updated in a couple of days. It's really been touch and go to be honest. He hasn't made much improvement, yet he hasn't gotten worse either. When I say he "passes out", that is just what I mean. He is not sleeping -I've had many chickens over the years and this is not sleeping...

    Rooster attacked by fox - gasping and shock 10 hours later. Help! the

    Thank you for your response. So far, he hasn't made any improvement. I hope his neck is just tired from an attack. I assume his neck isn't broken since he is able to lift his head. When he hangs his head low, it's almost as if he is passing out. He closes his eyes and becomes unresponsive and...

    Rooster attacked by fox - gasping and shock 10 hours later. Help! the

    My 6+ year old Rooster survived a fox attack this morning. He has been in shock all day and is still gasping for breathe quite a bit. We've put him in a box under a heat lamp in a quiet, dark room to help with the shock. We've also given him a bit of water a few times as well. Many tail...

    Chick has a "puffy" back of the head. Feels like air is in there.

    Thanks for the advice Eggcessive! At first I was doubtful, but after examining my chick again, I think you are right. When palpating the area, it definitely crackles like there is air in there. There aren't any visible injuries on the head, but yesterday the chick and another chick got into a...

    Chick has a "puffy" back of the head. Feels like air is in there.

    Hi! One of my 7 week old chicks has a strange "puffy" section on its head as of this morning. It starts at the top center of the head and goes to the back of the head. I would say it swollen but puffy describes it more and even stranger, it feels like there is air in there. It even makes a...
