In the Brooder
- Nov 4, 2011
I came home from my parents a few hours ago and seen a hawk flying away. My first though was my chickens, all of them were hiding in the coop but one. My boyfriend and I went to the area we seen the hawk coming from. We found her laying by the creek soaking wet and cold and bloody. We brought her inside, cleaned her up and checked her over and dried her the best we could and I sprayed blue cote on the only place that was the hawk got her. I have her under a heat lam now in the quietest room. I have offered her water but she wont drink any. She's just sitting there fluffed up and doing a smacking thing with her beak. Her breathing has evened out some. I'm sure she must have been terrified. Other than the on spot on the back of her head she has some broken and missing feathers. Is there anything else I need to do? I haven't offered food, her crop was full. Thanks.
