My friend and I picked up 1 very sick badly mauled rooster today. Great big open wounds, bad overall condition, shaking, more so when the dogs in the street bark. I have organised to take the other 2 and the hen off the people who also own the dogs that maul them. The poor creature is in a pen in my front yard, very safe. My friend has chickens and she dusted him with some fly strike powder which she said is antibiotic too ? He drank 2 bowls of water, had 5 feeds and is now asleep in a box with some woolies for warmth. She said he may die, or not. No maggots in the wounds. I have to get some stuff to kill mites before I can move him into a sectioned off part of my back garden. Anything more I can do or get to relieve the pain and shock ? When I can move him, and the others, which I get in 2 days, they will be next to the part my small dogs run in, mesh fence between them, until they are better and we can find homes for them, hopefully. Its 300 sq metres so big enough, I think ? My dogs will yap at them initially but not try to attack, even if they were face to face. Will this traumatise/stress them ? They were running loose on an unfenced garden and the street and the 2 big dogs just mauled them whenever they could get them. They all look a bit sick. Big injuries, hardly any feathers, stink, move slow. Maybe better off dead but feel sad they have had no life really, cant fly. They were magnificent when they got them a few months ago. What can I do for them ? I have never kept chickens.
