We had a raccoon attack last night. I heard the attack and went out to help. The raccoon got my favorite hen Goldie. I took her inside and made her comfortable. After closer inspection her neck is bad, and leaks water when she drinks. She made it through the night. Am I making her suffer? Also she just laid.

Clean the wound, keep her inside and let it heal. The raccoon could have a disease or virus or something so clean it often and wash your hands. Cover the wound if it leaks water when she drinks. If it does not get better I suggest don't let her suffer. If she made it through the night I think she has a chance. Watch her close. Add antibiotics and I hope she gets better! Don't cover the wound because it needs air to heal but keep her in a clean place.
