a local has just been walking past and let her dog off the leash, its sprang in the field and got one of our chickens as you can imagine im mortified (this is the second time its happened in 3 weeks...darn irresponsible dog owners. the last chicken was killed instantly but this one is still alive and i dot know what to do. our 'local' vet is a 2 hour drive into the city and 'doesnt really do' chickens (whatever that means) anyhow she has no tail left, its all pulled out, large puncture wound on the back, and a HUGE chunk missing under her left wing (you can see inside her ) her left leg is paralysed, she cant move it or bare weight on it, the farmer has just been over and said the dog has severeved the nerves/muscle to the leg, and the chicken will not recover. does anyone know if this is true? my hubby has said to prep her for the pot...its something we intended to do in the future (breed chickens for food) but not something i intended on doing with the 'pet' chickens..or so soon im devastated. what do i do??
