    Hi fellow chicken lovers,

    A predator attacked one of our chickens last night. It looks like she was grabbed by the leg and she is bleeding from around the top inside of her leg where she was bitten. I have isolated her and she is sitting, not moving at all. I also cleaned up the wound and wrapped it with gauze. I am going to try to find a vet to take a look at her but I wanted to post here for any experienced advice. Not sure if there is much I can do for her but I was thinking I could hand feed her and keep an eye on her and see if she will improve at all. The other girls are okay, just upset about the attack. Is there any good vitamins or immune boosters that I could feed her to help keep her strength up?

    Thank you for any advice,
    Elise

    Thank you for this advice. Geisha (our sweet hen) is eating and drinking water. The bleeding has stopped. I am going to keep her inside and see how she does over the next couple of days. She is not walking at all. Just limping to a fall. I hope she will make it through. Thank you for directing to this great information.
