    Night before last I lost to Chickens to a fox. Also my Drake was malled. He is in severe shock and is not walking. I cant see any injury, but upon inspection of the chickens there was significant damage to them so I can only imagine what my Clyde is going through. I can not find a vet, so I'm on my own. If anyone has any advise please help. I have put Him back in his secure pin outside with his Bonnie, and I am trying very hard to leave him alone. He seems to be in better spirit's today but still not walking. What should I do????

    I have no idea on what to do about the injury, but I would surely place traps for the fox, or use a predator call at dawn or near dusk to bring him into range.

    My Father-in-law taped a popsicle stick to the leg of a chicken that was injured and not walk, it actually worked to get it walking on it's own. However, I think he went through a of sticks. It used it like a pirate leg to walk. Not pretty but it lived.
