    Hi everyone, my hen ballina was attacked by something a couple days ago :( I didn't see it happen and when I took her to the vet she thought maybe a cat or hawk. If anyone has any ideas that would be great! So I can try to keep the predator away. Thank you[​IMG]

    I seen cat bites that doesnt look like a cat bite to me looks more like a something cut her. (Cat bites leave from my experiance two or one fang puncture wound that looks like something tried to skin her.

    The cat could've swiped at her and it's claw got stuck in her skin and she pulled and it sliced through her skin. I can't think of anything else that would do that. Poor baby.

    Hawks always start eating at the head first. Something probably interrupted. I'm so sorry.
