My husband and I were pulling out of our driveway this afternoon, when I felt him run something over. I thought, we have had these chickens, who we free range during the day, for 2 years and they always move. This time, our favorite rooster didn't move fast enough Rosie Roo (my 5 year old daughter named him that when we bought him as a Pullet, so when he started crowing, we just added Roo to the end). As soon as I noticed him laying in the driveway my husband got out to check him. (I didn't want to see him hurt). He is a 2 year old Barred Rock and he was just laying there. By the time my husband got to him, he was standing up. I couldn't beleive he was actually standing up....but that is all he did. He just stood there. My husband picked him up and he didn't fight(he is normally very aggressive with my husband). One eye was really swollen and he was bleeding around his comb. Our vet said that him standing up was a good sign, but he would probably be blind in at least one eye. He said since our driveway is dirt and gravel and it had been raining,it softened the dirt so maybe Rosie Roo didn't take the full impact. We put wound kote on his head and put him in a dog kennel to keep him safe. We gave him food and water and have been watching him closely. It has been 10 hours since the incident and he is still standing, has both eyes closed, (he was opening and shutting them for a little while when we talked to him), and isn't eating or drinking. The vet has hope and as much as I want to believe him, I don't want Rosie Roo to suffer. I'm at a loss. He is standing strong and he is sturdy on his feet, but is it possible for a blind rooster to survive? He is the leader of the flock and always protects his girls from danger and our other rooster. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions that may help me to hopefully makes sure he makes a good recovery? He isn't crying or whining so I can't tell how much pain he is really in. Please help!
