Today was a long, hard day, but I am incredibly grateful. Last night around 3 am Susie and Kodi (Chicken Saviors of the Night) heard screaming from the chicken coop and ran to see what was happening. All of the chickens were crowded around Marina (the chicken in this photo) and an animal (maybe cat, raccoon, we're not sure) was running away. Marina sustained some really rough injuries. Once morning came we made an appointment at the vet. It's been a day of cleaning up wounds and sewing chicken bandages and fixing chicken coops. The Quaills have been so supportive. Susie has taken on the role of head chicken nurse and has been tending to Marina so well. Marina has been a sweetheart through all of it. Even at the vet, she just wanted some pets.
She might get stitched up on Monday. We'll see if it can start to heal on its own. Please wish our little feathered friend well and send any advice you have. Thank you. ❤️
