    My chickens were attacked yesterday morning and one of my silkies is gone, and another has what appears to be a broken neck. She is still alive but still can't hold her head up. She is a little better than yesterday--she has a little more control over her head, but not very much. I have been feeding her water with a dropper along with mushed-up pellets mixed with water. She hasn't taken much, but she is getting a little. I've made her a little neck brace from an empty TP holder padded with fleece. Anybody got any ideas? She is only a few months old. Thanks.
