    Our friends' dog got in the coop and killed one and injured another. We have the injured one in a bin in the garage with one other chicken for company, but her legs have been just off to the side. Not sure if the legs are broken or her hips or dislocated or what. Not sure what to do. She has moved a few times but her legs...[​IMG]

    Sorry about your chicks. She may be in shock or injured in her legs or even internally. It's best to keep her in a quiet place close to food and water. Offer some things like chopped egg or tuna, and add some water to her feed to get more fluids into her. Vitamins and electrolytes in her water could help. Chicks are easily injured, but she may recover with a little time and TLC. Make sure your yard is dog proofed for the future. Let us know how she gets along.
