Hi everyone-- this is my first time posting. I've got a hurt chicken and I'm hoping for some advice... We had a weasel attack about five days ago that took our whole flock, except for one Araucana. Our girl has been inside since the attack, wrapped in blankets and near a warm fire. When we found her, she had no external injuries except for some bloody spots around her ears. The only trouble is that the weasel must have grabbed her and shook her because her neck is not quite right. When she sits down, her head lays back against her back. She moves her head around a lot; it looks something like convulsions or involuntary movements, but it's hard to tell. When she's not doing well, she shakes her head around and thrashes her whole body. Our girl can stand sometimes, and move around a little bit, and then she can hold her head kind of okay. We tried to make a neck brace for her out of a sock, but it seemed too heavy for her, so we removed it. We're tube feeding her right now, a mix of egg, water, and nutritional supplement-- she doesn't eat or drink. When we try to give her water her with an eye-dropper, she thrashes around and sometimes coughs. Most alarmingly, she gurgles often when she breathes. If we turn her upside down, we sometimes see a thick mucus-like substance coming out of her mouth. We're hoping that she'll slowly recover, but it's the gurgling that we're most worried about. (And the neck...) She poops and everything--her body seems okay, but it's the neck that's not right... Has anyone had a similar incident with an animal attack? We love our girl, but we're very concerned about torturing her if she's never going to recover... Please help!
