I had my chix out for the first time last night. When I checked on them first thing in the morning they were good, but then about a half hour later it looks like one of the little ones was injured. I dont know if a cat tried to get it through the wire or what, but she definatly had a puncture wound and was missing some feathers. I think the bleeding has stopped, and she was eating when I left...but I am soooo worried! What can I do! Can I save her? I dont know how to protect them from whatever it was that got her...the coop and run are fully enclosed I think she must have just been too close to the wall and another animal tried to reach in. I am sooo sad, I thought they would be ok. I have the heat lamp out there and lots of comfy hay, but I just dont know. Are they too young to give yogurt or treats too? How can I protect them, I dont know of any other way?!I am so sad.
