    My 4 month old hen, was attacked by a dog. Only hurt is that she is limping. She is eating, drinking, up on the roost, eveything, just limps. Will she be ok? What injury could it be?

    Are you sure she wasn't bitten. There might be a puncture wound or tear. Otherwise maybe she just sprained something trying to get away.
