One of our favorite hens was discovered this afternoon badly mauled - mainly her head and neck area. She does not seem to be in distress - no panting, heavy breathing, unsteadiness. There is no continual bleeding from the injuries now that she's been cleaned up. Eyes are closed/swollen over (?) Since she does have some open wounds - we have sequestered her from the other chickens - she has a heat lamp on her now, and I will probably bring her into the house overnight, since I really have no where else to put the flock except their current house. My concern is whether she is going to eat/drink on her own.....I held the waterer up to her and literally tipped it so her beak was wet, and she did take a few sips. With her eyes swollen shut, I'm assuming that she can't see the food. Her craw (?) seems full. Can't feel any swelling or other outside injuries anywhere on her body. We did have a coyote hit out in front of our house the other day on the road in the middle of the afternoon.....not sure if our daughter's arrival home from school spooked a coyote or if we have a neighbor's dog prowling the property. I always thought a coyote would grab and run.....this looks more like something had ahold of her and just went to shaking. We did have a hen come up missing last night when it came time to lock up; we do free range...locked up at night. We haven't had any issues until now. No evidence of that hen anywhere.
