I work from home so I'm here all day everyday. My husband even got me surveillance cameras for Christmas so I could check on my 5 girls from my desk while I worked. Wouldn't you know it yesterday (Saturday) I leave them out in the back yard while I make a quick errand. I was gone about an hour when my neighbor called me. She heard a hellacious racket and came over in time to run off a red tail hawk. I have a girl about 10 months old. Just started laying about a month ago. Delaware/Dorking mix. Very hardy. Her wing, her side and her tail has been plucked nearly bald and she lost half of her big tail feathers. I cannot find any open deep wounds and she never bled freely. The only blood seems to be from where the big feathers where plucked out. This is my first flock so I'm not sure what to do. I put her in a crate in the basement last night with a little baby aspirin dissolved in water. She's drinking and I got her to eat out my hand this morning. I made a soft cereal out of her regular pellets. She's pooping but not making any noise. Usually she's pretty spunky. Can chickens go in to shock? I'm off to tracker supply to get some healing spray. Any suggestions? When will the feathers grow back? How long should I wait before I introduce her back to the flock and how? (They were being real jerks to her before I could get home and get her sepeated from them) Any advice is greatly appreciated. I feel somewhat lucky she wasn't more injured.
