So last night i had a horrid experience. Luckily I was awake until about 2:30am when I heard a horrifying cry from my chook. I quickly ran downstairs and outside only to find 3 rackoons attacking my chooks. One of them had my alpha female by the head/neck and I thought she was dead for sure. Anyway long story short I scared away the rackoons, hit them with a long stick on theur backs, and safely stowed my chickens in the garage as our coup is obviously not predator proof. The hurt chook got up and wobbled about. She had her eye gouged out and multiple lacerations. So now at that point i go to the garage with sterikixing supplies and I'm cleaning her with saline solution and while I'm doing this she shakes her head and it got into the inner canthus of my eye. So shit what to do now. It was 3am by this point i wasnt't thinking clearly, I just new I had to clean her wounds. Has anyone else had this happen? What were the results? So three main questions: 1. How likely is it to catch rabies this way. The doc assured me that I have about a 0 to none chance of contracting the disease. And 2. How soon should i start her on antibiotics? I've already begun flushing out her facial wounds and then found another on her backside. Cleaned that and I am keeping her in a box inside away from the other chooks, fed and watered although shes not even attempting to eat or drink. 3. She also laid an egg this morning despite her injuries is this safe to eat? I'm new to all of this and am from Australia originally so I've never had to deal with possible rabies exposure.
