Three days ago a dog broke into my yard and killed two of my chickens, I only have one left and she is hiding in her nest and isn't coming down to eat or drink. I am worried about her. I have fixed the fence where the dog got in and spoken to the owner of the dog next door. Is there anything I can do for the last chook?

So sorry your welcome to BYC is such a sad occasion, but welcome anyway.

I would suggest you get her out and check her over very carefully for wounds. You may need to confine her to a cage until you can get her to eat/drink again. After 3 days she's probably getting dehydrated and if she has any hidden wounds she will need immediate treatment.

Thanks, I'll have a look after work today.
