Earnest Update

Earnest the rooster is still hanging on after being attacked by a fox four days ago. He hasn’t changed much in the last several days- he still has a hard time lifting his head and spends most of the time laying down. But just now, for the first time since the attack, he started crowing again! I have to admit I hadn’t really missed all the crowing- it can get a bit annoying- but this is certainly a sign that he is feeling better. I am theorizing that this means the swelling around his neck is beginning to go down, giving him the ability to crow again.

  1. I know this is old but I had a chicken attacked by a fox too and she is holding herself similar to how your rooster was. What was the end result?
