Fatally injured day old chick

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I found this little guy outside after collecting two hens and their chicks. I didn't know they were setting on eggs but they surprised me. But he looks like he has been attacked and has some very bad injuries. I'm not sure what to do other than treat his wounds and make sure he has food and water. Maybe that's all I can do. But if anyone has any help it would be very much appreciated.

Clean it really well, and as long as it's crop, esophagus, trachea and air sacs aren't damaged, it might heal okay.

thank you. I cleaned the wounds, applied peroxide and neosporin and the chick seems to be doing very well now.
