post #2 of 4
Please post a picture. Vetrycin spray could be a start. I would have to see the wound. Cleaning the wound. Stopping any bleeding.

Currently our chicken family consists of Bantam Blue Wheaten & Wheaten Ameracuna's, Bantam Welsummer, Bantam, Bantam Silver Laced Wyandotte, Bantam New Hampshires, millefleur D'unccle, a blue sizzle, white silkies, RIP Aggie. Stella and Becky our special needs hens. We have had backyard poultry for over 30 years We are a NPIP Certified flock NH15-226.

I picked her up but once she stopped being traumatized she wanted down now in the bushes near our house.
The wound is large no real blood almost as if the hawk pecked skin away and exposed underneath.
I figure she will die but trying to save her only one female left.
They free range and she is nervous with me but used to me feeding and my voice.
She is still alert and able to walk.
I do have a chicken coop that I could section off if you think that might help??

If you are in america, 

 

Vetricyn liquid spray wound care is great is for all animals with deep wounds to heal and fight infection, if u do not have that try some hydroperoxide and some neosporin and bandage it up with some medical cloth and gauze. Both of those things are completely safe for ducks , i use them, i know other who use them, the priority now would be to stop any bleeding, get her hydrated and start healing the wound.
