    I had a friend visiting from out of town and somehow her dog got left outside. He busted through the chicken run and chased 4 of them out of the run and they were found deceased in the yard in several places.It appeared as though they simply got scared to death there was no attack marks. Oddly enough my two Silkys were the only one's that survived, found hidden in two different spots. Bits the younger one is now limping and not moving hardly at all. She lost her mate that she was always with, she is eating and drinking though. My other Silky Pollo seems to be doing just fine she even laid today on her normal schedule. I am sure they are just traumatized after what looked like a massacre, If anyone has any ideas on what to do after such a incident tips would be appreciated.

    I don't really have any advice, besides keeping them warm, calm and quiet for a few days. Some electrolytes in their water ans a bit of extra protein in their food will help them recover.

    Just wanted to say that I'm very sorry for your loss.
