    I have a chicken about 2 months old. A raccoon got in and killed 6 other chickens. I found her unbalanced but no visible trauma. She wouldnt walk yesterday but today is up walking but is not very balanced. Has anyone had a chicken recover from something like this? Is she in shock or something?

    She may be in shock or have some physical injury.

    Was she the lone survivor or are their others?

    What happened that allowed the coon to get in and what you doing about that?
