Let me start off by saying I am a completely new chicken mom. This isn't an emergency, but last night we had a vicious racoon attack and he got three of our girls. He got in through the vent hole. Two others seem to be injured, but I have not been able to determine the severity- but the one that I think may have a damaged wing is now up on a perch (maybe 3ft off ground of coop) and the other who may have a wound in the middle of back has been eating well. I'm sure I'll have questions on care for the injured, but in the meantime I am actually wondering about the coop. We shot the racoon. There really was no other way to get him out of the coop, he didn't get scared away with us around and didn't stop his rampage after being shot the first couple times. So needless to say, there is blood everywhere in the coop. We have started the deep litter method, so my question is do we just stir it up and add a new layer or should we change it out completely? Will the freezing temperatures help us right now or are we better off emptying the coop and starting fresh?
