FLUID IN LUNGS, young Jersey Giant pullet
I bought some Jersey chicks a few months ago and they have been doing fine with our other babies. But while I was out in the yard today I heard what you never what to hear from a chicken, screaming. I looked over and she was being swung by her head. You would think that the assailant would be a dog, but they know better than to touch the chickens. You kill a chicken you get beat with a dead one. But to my horror, the one who actually picked her up was our 8 month old Jersey Heifer, who grabbed her, and was shaking her like she was trying to break off a tree branch. I got her to drop the chicken when I ran up to her, but when I checked the pullet, she sounded like she was gargling. I felt her neck, and it didn't fell broken except a small bump. She still seems to have full mobility of it and tried to eat, but is there anything I can do to help her? She is already separated from the flock.
