In my arrogance I have avoided this forum; I thought that I had everything right, and bad things wouldn't happen. Well, so much for that. Several weeks ago my rooster was killed by "something". But that was just bad luck, right? Today one of my hens was grabbed by the neighbour's dog - the neighbour saw, called the dog off. The hen is still alive, in ICU in my laundry room right now. Now, I don't want any advice about the neighbour, or the dog. I have a good neighbour (who is very upset right now), and IMO the whole thing was a tragic accident. But I would like to know (now that my arrogance has been so forcibly diminished) about first aid for chickens. I have my hen in a large cat carrier, with a small dish of pedialyte. She seems to be perkier than she was, and I am optimistic. But what other things should one have on hand in a "chicken 1st aid kit"? Any suggestions? Thanks for your input.
