    A dog chased my little frizzle bantam this afternoon- she got away and hid and I stopped the attack, but I'm still worried about her because, well, I worry. She didn't have any scratches and seems okay at the moment, although thoroughly freaked out. Is there anything I should do/watch for? Should I try to give her electrolytes or something?

    Just let her rest in a quiet place for a day or so. My girls were attacked by my mother's poodle - only one was actually injured - but they were ALL in shock and hiding! It was really scary for them. I just locked them all up in their coop for the rest of the evening and the night. Next day they were fine - skittish, but fine.
