    My flock was attacked by a fox this morning. One dead, one still missing, one badly injured(Shockey) and one beat up a bit. We've had Hawks attack but this has been the most devastating thing yet. My heart is broken today.:hit

    :hugs. So sorry for your loss. I hope you find the missing one in good health. Sometimes they will hide for hours after an attack. I've had raccoons obliterate some of my favorite chickens. More than once. Vent anytime. If you need advice on any of the injuries, let us know.

    Our survivor today. She's bruised, battered and weak but a bit better. Poor sweet girl.

    She still not very interested in food but drinking. She's still wobbly and weak but doesn't seem any worse.

    Try getting her some electrolytes thru her water if she's not eating.
