    Hi Doom, She will probably be all right. Did this happen in the daytime? You might want to be really observant from in your house, and see if you can spot any animals like coyotes, foxes, even Hawks or large rats, raccoons, squirrels have even tried to get ours. The reason she isn't sleeping is because of stress. She is stressing because she thinks she will get attacked again, and she is scared. She will probably stop laying eggs for a while because of the stress, and it can take a day up to a month for her stress to go away. Ask me if you need anything else.

    I assumed that she would be fine. It was still a good idea to post the pictures and ask for help though.
