    I've been looking through your forums for help and just joined. Think I posted for help but not sure how this works.

    We quickly cooped a chicken and hen that were the last of their wild flock getting attacked by dogs. Had what we think was a raccoon attack on the coop. The rooster didn't make it and now the hen is traumatized. I think she has a broken leg as she can hop but mostly sits in the coop. Hasn't eaten but a little wet pellets yesterday (it has been 4 days total) I've been able to give her sugar water from a dropper. I'm so lost!! I know nothing about chickens! Any help would be great please!!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! That's quite an introduction for you into chicken keeping and I'm sorry about the attack. I'm sure the members in the emergency section will be able you out.

    Good luck and I hope you can get your hen well again soon :fl
