Friday late in the afternoon, I happened to glance out the window and noticed what I thought might be one of the cockerels mating a pullet on the shadowy hillside. Wasn't wearing my glasses, but knew something wasn't right, and realized it was probably a raven attack. Quickly grabbing a pot and lid, making a racket and yelling while running toward the hill, fortunately for us, it was enough to startle the attacker, and it flew off. My DH (who had been supervising the majority of our flock while freeranging) came running when he heard. Together we ran to the lying chicken to see if we could save it. It was our largest bird (and my favorite cockerel) Rhode Island Rhett. So I called to him, but he was still completely motionless and looked dead. DH reached down to pick him up, and to our surprise, Rhett suddenly jumped up and raced down the hill, flapping his wings and squawking! We were so shocked, but so glad! He was winded and in shock, trembling, moaning, his face, eye and comb bloody and beat up, but he let me pick him up and hold him without struggle. We examined him and came to the conclusion that he was either pecked or clawed in the eye, and comb. His eye was very swollen, oozing yellow clear fluid. I can see a cut on his outer eye rim. It is possible his eye might be punctured or gone, or the swelling just makes it look like this. It's been a few days now, and we have separated him in a cage, and putting him outside in his cage during the day, and his flockmates have been nearby- been good for boosting his morale. We've been using a warm, wet cottonball to try to keep his damaged eye uncrusted and other wounds clean (His eye gets a bloody hued looking crust in the morning and night, but the crust doesn't look infected- as of yet.) But we've been giving him feed/ scrambled egg/ yogurt, children's vitamins. I will post photos soon, but I will let you know, they are graphic. We have no nearby avian vets locally in our rural area. Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts of what else we might try to do for him? Many thanks, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
