Aloha... One of my three adult RIR flew over our electric fence and got attacked by my dog. her wing, hip, leg look very distorted and my husband almost put her down but because she was eating and drinking decided to give rehabilitation a shot. She is in a dog crate by herself in the chicken pasture and the two other RIR seem to miss her and hang out around her crate a lot. Needless to say, all tree chickens stopped laying, I'm assuming they are all traumatized. Today is day 4 of this ordeal. My injured chicken is not moving bit is otherwise eating and drinking. Does anyone have any advice? I tried to splint her wing to her body but she keeps getting out of it. Not sure how long it usually takes for them to recover and at what point I should pull the plug. Thanks for your input in advance!
