The morning of December 28th my husband took a couple of shots at five coyotes. He followed them down to the creek and found our two-year-old rooster (a commercial Rhode Island Red) walking back up. He picked him up and brought him on home. He's missing all the feathers on his back and most of them on the back of his neck. We found five open wounds, presumably teeth marks. His skin is otherwise intact. We treated his wounds with a topical ointment (Corona) and put him out in the coop. He almost immediately crowed and we were feeling pretty good. We kept an eye on him all day; he seemed to act pretty much normal, walking around, drinking, pecking at the ground. That night he was up on his roost, but we brought him in anyway. The next morning we put him out and he acted as though he really didn't feel very good. This made sense to me as the soreness usually sets in the day after. That night he did not make it up on his roost; he was sleeping in one of the nests. That was the last time he has been outside. His condition seems to have remained the same since Tuesday morning. He is living in a travel play pen in our living room. He refuses to eat but drinks voraciously. I bathed him two days ago to get the ointment off and really check him out. His external wounds are healing very nicely; no sign of infection. I didn't feel any broken bones. I've never had good luck with feeding tubes, so I have put some laying mash in his water to make a broth for him in hopes that he will get the nutrition he needs. I keep a light on him at night so he can drink his broth when he wakes up, not just during the day. His waste is very runny, presumably because he is only ingesting water, and is a beautiful bright green. He doesn't walk around much, but he does stand. I don't know what else I can do for Ol' Red and it really bothers me that I haven't seen any improvement yet. Any suggestions?
