    I had two chickens hit by a car today. One didn't make it but one is still alive. She is currently in a box in kitchen with one wing wrapped. She seems very lethargic and will not stand up. There doesnt appear to be any leg trauma or exrernal bleeding. I've tried giving her water with a dropper but she won't take it.

    If you can't get her to a vet, put her somewhere quiet and warm. She doesn't need to eat or drink immediately. Don't poke her or manipulate her tonight. Warm and quiet. You don't want her any more stressed than she already is.

    Good luck with her!
