    I had a thread on here about my chicken being attacked by my dog. We can't find any obvious injuries but know that she has an issue with her left leg. It's been almost 48 hours and she still hasn't eaten or moved. Several times a day I use a syringe to get electrolyte water in her. How long can she go without eating? I've tried all her favorites: greens, mealworms. I have seen her take a drink on her own. I'm worried she'll just fade away without food - although I don't know how bad her leg is - I can't find anything obviously wrong with it.

    There is not much you can do if they have lost the will to live... I hope that is not the case here. So sorry.[​IMG]
