In the Brooder
- Sep 30, 2014
on Aug 26 my rooster was attack by a fox who crawled under the fence. He fought off the fox, but the fox took off with a hen. He left the rooster with most of the skin torn off one side of his face and a much smaller comb. This is healing nicely. He also took a chuck of his leg which he is still not using. The skin is healing, but the elbow bone is still exposed. I have some gauze on it to protect it some. I am introducing him back into the coop with his two hens. They peck around his wounds but he seems to enjoy it most of the time, It doesn't look like they are attacking him and there is no blood. I would like to put him in the coop full time. He has spent the last 6 weeks in our house, with daily visits to a connected coop. Is there still a chance his leg will heal?
