She had disappeared a day or two ago. My flock is kept in a fenced in area with coop within a fenced in yard but are allowed to roam the fenced in yard during the day. She's a bantam and no matter how hard we have tried, she manages to find a way out. She had dones this before and was waiting at the door the next morning so I was too concerned. Last night around 10 p.m. I heard that awfully squaking and went running out to the hen house and after determining it wasn't there honed in on where it was coming from and saw the bushes moving. I ran around to the gate and down into the woods (now I realize that may have been dangerous but oh well my hen was in danger) and found a spot where she had been sitting on a couple of eggs and a whole bunch of feathers. I kept looking around and finally found her. She's black and brown speckled so it wasn't an easy task. She has a pretty serious bite mark on sid and is tore up on the other side. You can literally see where something picked her up. I've put her in an isolation cage and wrapped her wounds. I didn't put anything on them as they're pretty bad and I didn't want to cause her anymore harm/pain than necessary. She lived through the night. I've started antibiotics and go out every hour and nudge her beak into the water so that she is drinking. For the most part she is just sitting there resting. Does anybody have any suggestions for anything else I should do? I know folks will say take her to the vet but that's not really an option money wise unfortunately. Also, I'm in central NC so does anybody have ideas of what predators are out there. I've been raising chickens for about three years and this is the first time anything like this has happend to my flock. Thanks.
