    My neighbors dog attacked my 3 weeks old baby chicks. And few are alive but they are puffed up! Is there anything we can do to save them!
    I really want to help them. Can’t figure out what’s wrong with them. Please help.

    Do you have a brooder ? The black one looks like it might possibly in some shock. warm and dark is about all you got for that. Im just guessing around 80.degrees

    It was a pit bull. And they might have some bite marks. Few of them has blood on their wings but they are not puffed up.

    I would put them in it. Have they gone to bed for the night already ? Maybe not move them. what are the temps there ?

    Yes they are in their box sleeping now. I might have to put them in the brooder tomorrow.
