We had a chicken that was bit by a raccoon. Can it get rabies from the raccoon?
I have no idea, but that is something I'd ask a vet for sure.
Birds cannot contract rabies, so no worries!
Looks like is it only a disease of mammals.
No, it affects only mammals. I'd search on here for how to treat the wounds though. And how to keep other chickens from pecking at the one who was attacked. Hope your chicken is okay!
No it can not get Rabies, how ever it can get a nasty infection, Also consider that the saliva carries rabies so don't be holding/cleaning and tending the bird unprotected. Ware gloves, just to be on the safe side.
