Sitting on the couch and I hear my two chickens going nuts I jump up in time to see my neighbors dog chasing one o the two across my porch. She ran into the coop but the dog followed though the door and pinned her. I got there just a couple seconds after. The dog ran (she's actually a really sweet 1 year old puppy). I thought the hen was dead but I picked her up and her heart was still beating. She has a small puncture on both wings, small amount of blood around left ear and left eye swollen ****. Also holding neck off to right.

I put some blue kote on puncture marks. She's walking a little gimpy. She's never liked to be held or Petted and she fell asleep in my lap while checking her out. I put her in a nesting box so she could be comfy and she laid down and went to sleep. Anything else I should do?

My chickens know that feeling. Neighbors got beagles, Blue tick, Black and Tan hounds hunting dogs or bear dogs sometimes they get loose. Or he forgets about them

Well I check on her this morning and she moved out to the roost bar during the night. Seems to be doing better. Eye still shut. Still waking skittle gimpy and neck still a little crooked but she ate a couple grapes this afternoon. She's scared to come out of the coop though but I can't blame her.

That's not a bruise. She was bleeding from there so I put some blue kote on it. She's very skittish but I managed to catch her tonight. Her eye went from blood red to and orangish color. She's actually starting to open it about half way. Pretty much had to force her out of the coop this Evening but once she was out se was right next to her buddy scratching and eating so se looks like she'll be ok.
