We had to put a chicken down for?

>Visit my folks for the weekend
>He and mom have like 24 chickens
I love chickens, I feel at peace when I'm surrounded by chickens
>The chicks escape the greenhouse
>Spend like 2 hours getting them back inside, see picrel

>Dog mauled one of the chickens last week
>Chicken is infected
>Rotting black-green skin, maggots everywhere

Dad tried bringing the chicken inside, cleaning it with isopropyl alcohol, and saving the chicken

>LostCause.jpg
>Takes chicken out back
>Shoots it with a 12 gauge to euthanize it
>It explodes
>He gives it a viking funeral pyre

This story ultimately adds up to nothing, I just am sad a chicken died

    I'm new at having backyard chickens and lost one recently to a raccoon attack. I've felt terrible about it for weeks. I know chickens are basically the most death-prone animal you can own because everything with teeth on this planet wants to eat them, so they WILL find a way, but it still feels bad. They're so defenseless every death is personally your fault.

    It really sucks for newbies like me who look online for information and get a bunch of people saying, "Take it to a vet", so then I call up multiple vets and NONE of them deal with poultry. I ask them if they have any information on nearby poultry or farm vets, and they couldn't give me anything. The closest aviary specialist I could find was over an hour away. My poor hen is sitting in a laundry basket mortally wounded while I'm trying to find some sort of vet assistance and nobody could give me anything. She finally passed after thirty minutes of me trying to figure out ways to save her and I felt so helpless and dumb. It's not even like backyard chickens are uncommon in my area (Massachusetts), so it's extra nuts that poultry vets are such an untapped market around here.

      Kill the raccoons at least. It’s the only way to avoid in the future barring moving your chickens somewhere more secure.

      They hated him because he dropped the trvke. Although if you’re going to make the decision to keep different animals in close proximity like that you should at least acclimate them to each other

    I used to work in a farm and visited those street markets that sell pets.

    I can't imagine the immense a creature would feel with having 500+ maggots eating and shitting at its body.

    Chickens evolved to be eaten. The correct thing would have been to take the chicken from the dog so it wouldnt learn to steal your food, kill it cleanly, prepare it, and then feed it to the dog. Leaving a half-killed chick alive is just moronic. They rot alive or just never become productive layers or fat meat hens.

    rip chicken
    these things happen when raising pets or farm animals sadly
    the responsible thing to do is ease their suffering you did well
    one of my very old hens got her cloaca stuck a while ago it was looking really bad I had to put her down
    im a eurogay so I had to go for the cleaver rather than the shotgun blast tho
    it's always sad

      The irony is that she's a fairly docile and friendly dog, no older than 2 or 3

      She's supposed to be a therapy/emotional support dog

      She sure wasn't being very supportive of those chickens, that's for sure

          So far all they've done is collect eggs

          One of the chicks might be a rooster and if that's the case then there'll probably be breeding in the near future

              Surprised it took this long for someone to say it. That's one less reason to get attached to chickens because EVERYTHING that is at least as large as them sees them as food or playthings.
