    One of my girls got in a ruckus with a fox and isn't doing well. I can see blood around her "ears". I have her in a warm place and have tried to clean her up the best that she would let me. She has drank a little water, when I feed it to her. [​IMG] She does this weird thing, she will back herself in a corner, shake, almost like a shiver and then her head will fall onto the towels she is laying on. I don't know what is going on. Best guess is he grabbed her head and bit, maybe brain damage?!? If so, how can I help her move on? I can't snap/cut her neck....I just don't think I can. [​IMG]
    Any info would be appreciated!
    Thank you!!!

    Ugh...One of my guineas just came back 2 days later and is limping. She was in the run with the others and now is bleeding. I think the chickens are pecking her! Ugh!! What to do now. We don't have enough place to have 2 different infirmaries going. I am at a loss. [​IMG]
