    One of our hens was just attacked by what looked like a hawk. She is now leaking some sort of clear liquid. Does anyone know what that could be or what we could do to help her?

    Is she leaking the clear liquid from her mouth? It may just be shock. Is there any damage/wounds to her? If not, she just may need a calm/quiet place to calm herself down.

    I don't know if there's anything wrong her really then. She may just be in shock. As far as the clear liquid coming out of her butt, have you checked for an internal egg perhaps-any yellow like yolk coming out?? I can't even imagine what that would be... does she have any symptoms that are causing you concern other than the liquid?
