So question to all of you out there. This one is for my freind who is also a chicken owner but doesnt use this forum. I am kind of curious as well. She was just telling me that her chicken had gotten swiped by a racoon and now has a big patch of feathers missing from her side. Her chick is freaked out and wont let her near her at this time. (Her chicks are free range) She doesnt know how bad the damage is at this point. So I am wondering- when she can finally get near her enough to see the damage does she bring her to vet if its bad? What do you do??? Has anyone out there experienced anything like this???
