    My hens got attacked by a raccoon last night. Only one hurt. Bit her hind end, only one or two feathers left. One eye is oozing a little bit. Put neosporin on her hind end and near eye. What diseases can raccoon's pass to chickens?

    i'm glad it wasnt any worse for u and your birds......im not sure what diseases can travel to different animals. ive always thought most viruses are specific to what and where they can infect.
