    Bad attack in coop last night. One lady gone, one, severly bitten in thigh, open flesh wound, not walking.

    Should my DH put her out of her misery or just wait?

    I believe it was a raccoon pulling them through fence. NOt sure why they were near fence since their roost sits in the middle of coop, but......

    Can you get a picture of the wound? Many people's birds can recover but depending on the severity it may be kinder to cull her.

    YEs. My dh may have already done the deed, but I'll check when I get home. He's not good at the stuff. Poor thing.
