Somethings been targeting my babies and only leaves feathers and blood. They r freerange but ill be building a pen soon. So. Came home and found two polish missing. Searched everywhere and found nothing. Hours later my chicken herding dog (aka boxer) keeps whining at me and pawing at a bush. Finally I checked and my fave chicken ever is lying there wrapped in weeds and vines, conscious but limp. I untangled her and checked her and didn't see any wounds so I thought she must have gotten tangled and was exhausted so I brought her in and offered mealies and water but she didn't want any. I flipped her over and there was dried blood all over her stomach! But I couldn't see any wound without washing it but I was afraid to reopen it especially with the kids freaking out. I put her back in their box outside and at dark the others came in and they all went to sleep. I went in to check and they r all laying down except her. Which is better than her laying there half conscious. But it appears she's in too much pain to lay down. And I just don't know what to do. If she just died is be sad and it'd be done. But now she's hurt and suffering. I have to help her!
