    Hawk attacked one of my chickens 3 days ago..i thought she was going to die, she couldn't lift her head or use her legs but this morning when I went to give her water with a strange she is now able to lift her head and keep it up..my worry is her legs and what if anything I can do to help her. She can move them but not stand. I keep turning her from one side to the other every so often.but don't know what else to do..

    Welcome (I wish it was under better circumstances)

    Here's a link to take you to the emergency forum:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
    Post as much information as you can about the chicken and the exact nature of her injuries (a picture might help too).

    There are some very knowledgeable members over there and one of them might be able to help you out.

    Good luck!
