Bok is my favorite chicken. I hand raised her & she's the sweetest chicken I've ever met. Today my cousin brought over his new dog, a border collie. We played frisbee in the field for over an hour. I had noticed that the chickens had wandered out to the field. I immediately got my cousin to leash his dog. She had shown signs of wanting to chase the chickens early while on the leash. He got her on the leash. I ushered the chickens back into my yard. I turned around & my cousin pretty much immediately let his dog off leash. ( my dogs do not attack the chickens) She circled around & went straight for the gate & I was on her heels, I knew immediately what was going on. She managed to get ahold of bok & I was on top of her seconds afterward. But it was enough time to do some damage. I looked her over & thought she was ok. But then I lifted her wing & saw a very large tear in her skin & i could see her muscles............which sent me immediatly into tears. I scooped her up & ran inside & told my BF. we got in the truck & took her to the 24hr vet. After two hours of waiting they finally looked at her. They're going to try to sew her up. people there probably thought I was nuts, but there were a few people that looked @ her & remarked on how calm & docile she was. She literally sat next to me & my BF on the bench in the waiting room. Randomly 'cooing' like she usually does. We have to go pick her up in a little bit. I hope that its a success. I'm not mad at the dog. i'm more mad at myself for not putting the chickens up & taking a chance, even thought we were in a different area. And so happy that my dogs dont even think about bothering the chickens. I called my best friend right when i got home, Bok is her favorite chicken too, she started crying also. I know it seems impossible to love such a 'basic' animal to some people, but Bok is a special chicken. Please send prayers for Bok.
