    I feel for you! I have 2 dogs.. a Husky and a black lab. The black lab lays with my chickens and the Husky eats them. I had a similar incident with my husky.. killed 2 silkies. As far as care, just keep wounds clean, keep them warm, and when I have an injured bird, vitamins in the water helps too. Good luck!

    I am not sure about the doctoring, but there is a water soluble aspirin you can get at the feed store, it will help the pain! I am sorry about your chickens![​IMG] I hope hope they get better soon!

    they heal better when you keep their room temperature up... as for the dog a lead pill delivered at very high speed will cure him.

    I'm sorry. I don't have advice other than what's been given for your chickens. But, I do want to Welcome you to BYC - too bad your first post is under such awful circumstances.

    thanks everyone i put the heat up in the chicken house for the birds and where i live you cant shoot guns in your yard because we are so close to other houses but since the dog killed my grandfthers favorite bird and injuried my favorite one their is this big pitch fork sitting on the front porch if the dog comes back which it probally will because the dog got one of my neibors chickens a couple months back so it will be back and will to have fun again but wont leave again but thanks for the advice for the birds they looked better today than yesterday anyway
