My 2 month old chicken was chased by my dog and was hiding all day. I thought she was a goner when I could not find her and she would be out overnight, but the next day she came out and when I found her she was very traumatized and had a little bruising on her back and sides. She does not trust me very much yet and would usually run if I tried to go near her but now she just lets me pick her up. When I pick her up she has her legs stick straight out underneath her and she has very bad balance when I put her down. I have been keeping her in a dog crate with food and water. She will drink the water if I put her head to it but otherwise I have not seen her go near it. She is alert, but sometimes she will keep an eye closed for a while. She will open it if I go near her (it does not look to be injured). Is she suffering or still in shock? It has been a day since I have found her.
