    Hi Guys

    I have just discovered a dog got my little bantam chooky, shes breathing but very limp, her eyes were closed but she opened them when I picked her up.

    Shes not bleeding from anywhere, im pretty sure the dog just played with her :-(

    I have put her in a box in the quiet and dark with a towel over her to keep her warm, can anyone else recommend anything? :-(

    You could try giving her some heat, like using a heat lamp or set her on a heating pad. Heat has a calming effect on birds and can sometimes actually be life saving. Also put some vitamins in her water since she is probably still stressed.
