How's she doing today?Just gave her about 5 tums crushed up in her water. Hopefully it helps.
Oh, no! Thank goodness you were there to save her! I think you've done all you can / should for now, just keep an eye on her for sure.Due to predators, my flock has been mostly cooped up. They usually run around a bit each morning while I clean & refill feeders. Then I call them back in & lock them up. Today while I was outside with them, poor Poof Poof (my son's Spitzhauben) was landed on by a hawk. I saw the scuffle & chased the hawk off while Poof Poof ran inside. i collected the rest from their hiding spots & then looked over Poof Poof. The only bloody spot is on her wing. I ran the wing under warm water & parted the feathers to generously spray Blu-kote. Thankfully I saw no wounds on the neck or body and the wing moves normally.
Is there any other care I should give right now? She's friendly but seriously dislikes being confined, so i returned her to the coop/run.
My flock is locked down today, too, though from what I'm not sure. They were definitely spooked this morning and most of them were hiding in the coop anyway. Best to play it safe and close them in where I know they're safe. There has been a feral cat lurking around lately, though they haven't reacted this strongly to it in the couple weeks it's been around and it's only been after chipmunks and mice near as I can tell... Anyway, I hope whatever has them spooked moves on quickly when it realizes there are no chicken dinners to be had here.
Wish my Guineas were this useful! The worst thing they've ever mobbed was an already dead mole.one squeezed through the bars and attacked my frizzle rooster. The guinea flock crowded the shed, I got my fella out and the guineas killed it.
