Three weeks ago my dear Paprika got torn apart by a dog (owner was served a citation for unleashed dog). She has been in vet care ever since. She's been stapled together, on antibiotics, pain meds, force fed for days on end, and is sleeping in a cage in a bedroom. The vet made her a jacket of sorts out of patterned fleece to hold her bandages in place. The vet lets her out in the garden to peck and poke and get fresh air and to be near other chickens (separated of course). Saturday the vet tells me a giant raptor flew down to get her, there were feathers everywhere, etc. but the raptor didn't succeed in taking Paprika. Could the coat she was wearing have prevented claws from getting a good grip? Could the coat have attracted the eagle, hawk, owl, whatever it was? She has new puncture wounds, but not as severe as the dog attack. I cannot believe my poor bird was attacked yet again! Poor thing. My vet bill must be up to $8,000 now for a $4.00 bird. Insanity!!! Pray for Paprika. This is one heck of a chicken with a strong will to live for sure! Long live Paprika!
