A raccoon got into our coop the other night and I woke up to the raccoon screaming. I ran out thinking our top hen was dead because of her feathers were everywhere, but about 5 minutes after I got outside, she ran out of the coop injured. That was about 36 hours ago. She is now recuperating in our garage. She is sleeping a lot, but when we go in, she becomes very alert for a little and talks to us. She is missing a large patch of feathers on her chest and has a lot of bruising. She also isn’t wanting to sit down any. Her beak is bloody and it seems to be bothering her. She didn’t eat or drink much yesterday (the first day) but now she is drinking like crazy — for a solid hour, at least. Her whole chest is drenched. Is this normal? I don’t remember them being such messy drinkers. I’m hoping she is getting water in her body and not spilling it all? And I’m assuming it’s a good sign if she is still alert 36 hours after the attack?
