    Hi. We had some chickens wondering our neighborhood and all was fine until some one moved in with awful leashless dogs. We scrambled to get a coop built and were able to save 2. Long story short a raccoon(we think) attacked the coop. The rooster didn't make it. And now I feel like the hen is traumatized. She can hop around but stays in coop. I've been able to get her to drink water from a medicine syringe. She ate a small amount of pellets watered down yesterday. But it's been 4 days total and I'm at a loss!
