Well, I won't doubt you ladies and gents again... My chickens won't be free ranging without supervision! Yesterday my neighbor's kids came over to ride horses. Their parents decided to stop by, bringing their french bull dog. Their two bird dogs, who never do seem to stay in their yard, decided to show up from out of nowhere and attacked my flock. The stupid owners were too busy trying to grab injured birds to get their dogs... I kept yelling at them to get the dogs under control as I couldn't catch them. Finally the husband did. Mean while, 4 kids are watching the carnage, never mind them... So, I have one dead chicken, one dead duck, one injured duck, one critically injured chicken and one chicken with puncture wounds. I think the duck and punctured chicken are going to be okay. The duck has a huge gash across her chest, but only through skin. Muscle seems intact and I can't see any internal organs. The critical chicken I'm not so sure about. I'm pretty sure she has a punctured lung. Her whole back is nearly stripped and she has two deep punctures. Has anyone had a chicken injured this badly survive? Should I just put her out of her misery? I'm treating the wounds with Vertercyn (sp?), EMT gel, and Blu Kote. They're isolated on clean bedding with duramicin (sp?) in their water. I made hot mash for breakfast with chick starter and honey. No one seemed real interested in the food, but the duck and the not so injured chicken drank some water. Is there anything else I can do for them? We don't have any vets in our area that work on birds (pets or livestock), so I'm on my own. My husband and I are planning a nice big chicken/dog run in the backyard, where our dogs can keep them safer. We'll be buying supplies today to get started.
