    Ok. My neighbors dog attacked my 9 chickens. 3, that I know of, died. 2 are fine and are locked up in the coop. The rest are lost. Well one if the two that are safe is now deathly afraid of me. Runs away when I try to pet her. Please I want my normal chicken back. Any help on how to get her to trust me again. She won't get out of the nesting box area into the outside gated fence
    Please help

    I would give them a full week before trying to talk her into being friendly again.

    She needs quiet for several days to recover from the stress.

    Agreed. She will get 'back to normal' but it will take time, bribery with treats also helps!
