    Good Morning. I live in Texas and my dog got ahold of my coop :( we lost 2 chickens and one is really injured. She made it over night and drinks and eats. I checked her out and under her wing you can see her skin must of torn because I can see her spine. I can not kill her :( what can I do to help her? I have seperated her in a dog cage but kept her in the coop. Any advice is great!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! I'm sorry it's not under better circumstances :( Please do post in the emergency section where I'm sure members will be able to help you. Chickens really can make a recovery from injury so there is a chance she will recover from this. The initial thing to get them over is shock and your girl eating and drinking is a good sign.

    Good luck with her and I hope she can make a good recovery :fl
