    A stray dog attacked my chick pen last night! [​IMG] What's really ironic is that it's an anatolian shepherd. It's been hanging around here awhile and has picked off a couple of hens, and today it got a silkie. [​IMG]

    Luckily, I found another silkie that I thought it had gotten, playing dead in the grass. I brought it in, since it appears to be in shock.
    I also had a couple of turkey poults in that pen, and one of them had the puffed up "I don't feel good" look. I brought him in too, and found he has been skinned on his back. He had some feathers stuck under the skin, so I pulled those out and cleaned it up as best I could, is there anything else I need to do for him?

    I am so sorry. Did you catch the dog? I hope all works out for you. [​IMG]

    Quote:Unfortunately I wasn't able to. But I see him around often, and now I have a reason to do something about him. This area is over-run with stray dogs, and so far none have bothered my chickens. I guess this one finally got hungry enough to try.

    I've used H2O2 and super glue on wounds like that. A good flushing, then glued the skin seems together.


    I wish you the best.

    Quote:Thanks! I will definitely flush the wound, though I'm not sure there's enough skin to pull back together. I will give it a try though. Thanks again!

    This is why roaming dogs get a hostile reaction from me why they enter my land.I'm sorry if the dog is hungry, but i eat eggs everyday, and i'm not going to go without because some dog killed my hens...! Sorry your dealing with this, good luck..
