Just saved on my red sex links life...Our two dalmatians love the chickens and when in the field never pay any mind to them. Our lab mix on the other hand we only had him for a year and is curious and will be relaxing one minute then go after a chicken the other. Our Dalmatians were raised since 6 months with chickens so they never hurt them. Well I let the dogs outside in their fenced in area (chickens are free ranged) then go to get some treats to feed the chickens. Come outside all three are hovered over a red sex link who is on her back, and I assume at this moment she is dead. I hurry and gather the dogs up put them in their crates inside the house. Meanwhile our rooster is going crazy. I went over to her, she was laying on her back, and her head/neck was wet, I assume from our lab. I thought she was dead until I saw her chest moving up and down from her breathing. So carefully I turn her over and put her on her feet. After about 5 minutes she is walking around and even eating some treats and concerned on how to get over to her flock. I guess being on her back caused her to go unconscious? I've heard of hanging them upside down by their feet does, but not just laying them on their back. Anyway we let her with rest of her flock, giving everyone treats so they would leave her alone and not make a big deal about her almost dieing. She goes to her favorite hiding spot and is just relaxing. I am sure she is scared after the ordeal. I checked her over and as far as I can tell no broken bones. She isn't bleeding. It looks like they just pulled feathers from her butt so I put some blu knot on her. When i went outside one of my Dalmatians had a mouth full of her feathers. But my questions is how long will it take her to go with rest of the flock? I have to figure a way to keep them from flying over the dog fence, Clipping wings isn't an option because they fly to get away from other predators.
