    Hi, so we had a visit from the fox in BROAD DAYLIGHT today and he went after our 6 chicken. Out of them the fox only killed one, but one of the 5 left was in its mouth but it dropped her. We thought she had a broken neck and my dad was going to have to put her down. He was about to do so when he looked round and she was stood upright fully concious. Even so, she doesnt stand on her right foot, but can feel with it and its moveable as she squeezed a little on my sisters fingers and sort of 'pedals' with it now and a gain. She also has a salmony coloured right hand wottle and skin round her face and i dont know if there is anything we can do to help her get the nearly full use of her right leg back. Suggestions please (and its not disease disease caused.)
