Skinned chicken (picture included)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Last night something attacked my young chickens. This morning I found my one and a half month old Golden Pencil Hamburg hurt. She is missing a big patch of skin right along the left side of her breast and her neck, close to her wing. She has no puncture wounds and she's not bleeding.

I brought her in and cleaned her up. I smeared triple antibiotic ointment on her to try to keep the wound from drying out. Then I dressed it with a split sponge bandage.

She has fresh food and water and limited mobility with the box I'm keeping her in. She is eating and drinking. I've covered the box with a towel to keep her calm.

Any more suggestions for what else I can do to help her would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I can't be of too much help, but it sounds like you have done a lot to help her already. Keep in mind, chickens are very resilient. The only other thing I can think of that I might do is get her on some save a chick, as she most likely is stressed. Good luck, hopefully someone more experienced than myself will come along to help.
