    My ten year old americauna was jumped by a raccoon 24 hours ago.
    she only had a little blood near her comb that I could see.
    she layed quietly in our mudroom sink all day.
    We put her in the coop for the night.
    She is standing quietly in the coop this morning.
    a little color has returned to her comb.
    She will not open her eyes. She turns her head if I cluck to her.
    Is she still in shock?
    I did try to open her eyes yesterday and they seem to be tucked way back in the socket and watery discharge came out.

    Will she snap out of it?
    What should I do to help her?
    Thanks

    Yes she sounds like she's still shocky. Keep her seperated or with one nice friend in a darkened quiet area. Give poultry vitamins in water and keep her from getting chilled. Also give a little antibiotic in her water to fight infection from the coon. Wipe some regular neosporine in her eye to keep it moist and clean.
