Help please chick with head wound

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all,


our week old chicks were out with Mum and flock and it looks like she was kicked in the head while they were scratching around. She has a wound on either side if her head. She is still breathing but just lying there with her eyes closed.


Should we try to save her and is there anything we can do?

Try to give encourage her to drink - add vitamins to the water and keep her warm and then keep your fingers crossed! Mother hens are not always to most gentle are they?


Good luck

Thank you, she has had a little bit to drink and is quiet and warn, so hoping for the best.
