Hi! I'm a new registered users and wish to thank all of you so much! I have been reading and learning for months. We are new brood owners (6 bards and 6 rhode islands, now 4 rhode islands) and have and great success until four days ago. While we were out at a dance recital our chickens were ravaged by a pack of wild chihuahuas. I know it sounds funny but it's not. Two were killed, two severely injured and the rest just plain scared to death. My needs currently: I have one chicken with an injury to her side which I am keeping clean and seems to be healing. However, she got poo butt big time. I'm setting about cleaning it while trying not to injure her more. Any suggestions are appreciated. Other need: One of my reds is displaying signs of illness now. She was fine a few days ago after the attack, but now had "dropped" her tail feathers and waddles like a duck. when I try to get a look at her, she runs - tail up- and hides. I'm wondering if she's eggbound or just plain not feeling well. She wazs not interested in eating today when I put out their favorite treats - oats mixed with yogurt. Any words of advice from you wise people will be gratefully appreciated. Thank you.
