I posted my questions at the wrong place. Thanks to all of you who welcomed me and for directing me to the right area. I have standard cochins, 10 of them. possibly eight after this. Monday night we got home a little after dark , I let my chickens out during the day. shut them in at night. A raccoon killed one hen, and my big rooster and another hen were chewed up on the head. The hen seems pretty perky but her beak is totally splintered but she drinks when I syringe it in her mouth. The rooster stands with his head hanging, he bled a lot from his comb . tonight he started putting his head up a little and on better examination of him his lower beak is split in half up toward his nostrils. I got a couple syringes of water in him. I had previously used a drench and put vet rx on their heads , also emt gel and antiobiotic cream. I feel pretty bad about this as I should have left them in when I am not sure how late I will get home. the raccoon ran back in the coupe because my daughter got home before us and kept holloring at him . Hubby tried to shoot him and missed. I guess there isn't any hope for the hen since the beak appears to be splintered so that you cant find the nostril just kind of a hole that her tongue comes out to drink and swallow. ugh she really seems to want to live. called new Bolton which is near hear and they just called back . said probably best to euthanize , the beak can not grow back and the hens sinuses are exposed if I cant find the nostrils.. so they said wait till tomorrow and then I can take them in to euthanize. Anyone have any ideas on the issue with the beaks. I just cant kill them myself. I know that sounds alwful.
