I found at least a dozen maggots of varies sizes. They were all around his bottom area. I picked them all off and flushed the area best I could. I moved him from a small pen to my horse trailer. When I cleaned the small pen I found about 10 large maggots. So I went to re-examine him. In doing so I didn't find any more mature ones but the areas I had flushed had lots of little tiny ones. I sprayed and sprayed but could not get them all. I have never seen anything like this.
He has a wound, area they ate I guess, about 3 inches below his anus. They are in there. They are also in his anus, I assume they are actually inside in there. I don't know what to do to help this guy. He's one of the best roosters I've ever had. I can get them off the outside but what do I do about the inside?
I don't want him to suffer either, what a horrible way to go. Is there any hope for him?
