    One of my LF cochin hens has been mauled by somthing thru the fence. It grabed her by the tail and ripped her open. Her insides are hanging out. Is there anything I can do?

    I'm so sorry!!!! I know it's hard, but I would cull her quickly so she doesn't suffer. Do it while she's in shock - she must be in terrible pain if her intestines are out.

    Poor baby!!

    I agree with above, and I am so sorry! It is hard to lose one! [​IMG]
