Well it happened. Two days ago, MY dog got one of MY chickens. I have been working with the dogs but this one just got in that prey - predator mode and .. well it's not pretty. We got the dogs up and the caught the injured chicken. I really thought she was going to die but... She has spunk and a real will to live. She is missing feathers and skin on the back of her neck about the size of a quarter. It really looked bloody and painful. Even right after the attack she fought to be put down and ran off with the flock to eat bugs. Since these are our first chickens, I called a friend to help. Together we caught my girl, cleaned the wound, clipped feathers that were laying into the wound, sprayed it with a cleaners from the her vet, put some antibacterial ointment on it and gave her a special place to bed down that was near the others but dust free and protected from the others. So far she acts as if nothing is wrong: eating, drinking, pooping, moving her head in all directions with seeming ease, running with the group, even protesting being caught. In all ways she seems healthy. It does seem to be healing but that is a lot of exposed area.I am spraying her with the cleanser 2x day and reapplying the antibacterial ointment.I think my biggest fight is infection prevention. Has anyone had a chicken with injuries like this that has a happy ending? Please note: Originally I had hopes to train the dog to work with the chickens but now I just want to train her to totally ignore them. All animals have their own homes when I am gone. Now I don't trust the dog when I am present. I borrowed a shock collar to help with training. Any other suggestions on how to train the dog? Please don't say get rid of the dog that's not an option. I am praying training will work.
