I have a flock of now 9 13 week old and 7 7 week old. Something started picking my chickens off one by one starting with 2 of the smaller and then 1 of the bigger. That one left a trail into the woods and I searched to see what it was and I guess I spooked the bobcat out as it left the wood and my husband saw it come out as he got home. We set traps and have been hunting it. My flock is free range and this has all been happening in the afternoon. Yesterday I saw that cat take one of my chickens and started running off and we ran out of the house and chased it guns blazing and it dropped the chicken and ran off. My question is, she is walking fine and actually made it through the night but her leg is wide open with the muscle showing. The muscle is in tact. I separated her from the flock and rinsed the horrible wound. The only thing is now is she still is not eating or drinking. She did poop so I thought that was a good sign. Any suggestions? I am really bummed that having my dream of a free ranging flock is not going to happen. I enjoyed watching them just play in the yard all day and I have such a beautiful coop and now I'm going to have to make an ugly run and the chickens won't be as happy as they were. Super sucks. I want to cry. It was going great for 2 months and then this.
