My 6+ year old Rooster survived a fox attack this morning. He has been in shock all day and is still gasping for breathe quite a bit. We've put him in a box under a heat lamp in a quiet, dark room to help with the shock. We've also given him a bit of water a few times as well. Many tail feathers were ripped out and he has a large bald spot, but the only injuries I could find were very minimal small scrapes on his bottom (where feathers ripped out) and on his comb which was injured too (not badly). So far he seems to be able to stand and does so every once in a while. He also can lift his head up, however he will only hold his head up for moments, and then hangs his head down low. Whether he is lifting his head or has his head dropping, he really is gasping for breath a lot, sounding wheezy. When we first found him, he was standing but gasping for breath and actually had a lot of mucus coming out of his mouth that he was sort of gurgling on. That was hours ago and there doesn't seem to be any more mucus coming out. While I can't be sure of internal breathing, he has had his first droppings of the day which was very loose but had no signs of blood. I once had a chick attacked years ago that suffered ruptured lungs and I was able to successfully puncture the "balloon" to let the air out from under her skin - she lived. However, this doesn't appear to be the case with my rooster, Rhett. It's what I initially thought may be going on due to his wheezing, but there isn't any obvious signs of the air pockets under the skin. Any ideas of what might be going on? And ideas of what I can do to help him beyond what I am already doing? Thanks to everyone in advance for any advice!
