My 1.5 year old black australorp was attacked by a medium sized hawk yesterday. My husband was able to get to her and get the hawk to fly off. At first she seemed to be in shock with both her eyes closed and was breathing through her mouth for about an hour. Around dusk I put her in the coop and she did hop up and sleep on the roost throughout the night. One of her eyes is swollen and sealed shut...I'm not even 100% sure that she still has the eye. I can't see any other wounds on her body and she seems to be getting around ok, just very nervous/flighty because she can only see out of the one side. What should I do? We don't have a chicken vet around here...should I try to open the eye? anything I should put in it? I feel so bad that this happened, I guess they wont be free ranging unless we can be out there to supervise from now on. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 1) What type of bird , age and weight. Australorp, 1.5 years, normal weight 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Wont open eye, looks a little swollen. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? Hawk attack was around 3pm yesterday afternoon. 4) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. No bleeding, just wont open her eye. 5) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. Hawk attack. 6) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. I'm not sure if she is drinking on her own, I did give her an eye dropper of water this morning just in case. She ate a small piece of bread this morning, I'm not sure if she is eating her pellets. 7) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Normal-runny 8) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? None 9 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? I'd like to treat her anyway I can myself, we do not have a vet that treats chickens in our area. 10) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. N/A 11) Describe the housing/bedding in use. pine.
