In the Brooder
- Oct 14, 2014
One of my chickens was attacked 13 days ago, we thinkit was a cat. She had a nasty wound and lost lots of feathers. We cleaned it and used a spray plaster and it seems to have scabbed over and doesnt look infected. She seemed ok, however, for the last 8 days she has been hardly moving, her feathers have been puffed up and she is hardly eating anything. She is so skinny now she has also had diarrhea. I managed to feed her a bit of scrambled egg and layers mash mix earlier feeding her on my finger but she wasnt very keen.
I felt her crop and its doesnt feel full or blocked. Her neck feels a bit swollen/ sticking out but it could be because she is so skinny?
Ive tried having her in the house but she seemed a bit hot so I or put her back outside so she was not alone. Ive now got her in the greenhouse to keep her out of the rain and wind.
Please help, she looks so miserable :'(
