Hi all - the Bobcats are back with a revenge this year. On Sunday, my hubbie and I were watching our chickens free-range when all the sudden, a large, stray dog came running up in our back yard (we have 2 open acres that are very secluded-tons of trees). As soon as we stood up, he bolted; however, it did cause all the chickens to run for cover. My old girls were smart and headed my way, but the 12 week olders took the protection of the trees and brush that line one of our creeks. While my husband took off to make sure the dog disappeared, I went looking for the young'uns and couldn't see them anywhere. All the sudden I heard a commotion not 10 feet down the bank from where I was standing and knew a bobcat must have attacked. In 1 second I was down the side of the hill and discovered it had almost killed my most beautiful young girl, Heather, a blue and gold EE, who died in my arms. The rooster, Jet - a Black Australop, was close by and was able to get back up the embankment and seemed fine, although he did lose some feathers. However, the next day, I found him sitting in the run and then later that afternoon crouched in a corner of the coop. His crop was empty and I was sure he had not nourished himself that day. I took a second look for wounds and the only thing I could find was a small scratch on the back of his leg and what appeared to be a non-bleeding puncture under a wing. I now have him in the bathtub, dimmed lights, water, feed and egg (know he's a bit young for that, but I'm trying anything). Question: is it possible he has internal injuries that I just can't see? Any recommendations?
