antibiotic ointment?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

One of my two month old Auracana chicks got her head stuck in the corner of the coop.  We have the younger chickens divided from the older with a wall of pallets and she somehow got her head stuck where the pallet meets the wall.

Anyway, her head is raw, no active bleeding.  I have moved her into my "infirmary", a cage in my master bathroom.  This will help keep flies and other chickens from bothering her.

My question, other than keeping her wounds clean, is there an antibiotic ointment that I can apply to help fight infection? 

I am quite worried about her.  I think she also injured a wing.  Her eyes are bright, she seems comfortable enough and she is eating.  Any thoughts??

neosporen is one, bag balm works also. although bag balm is my preferred choice the other i think is cheaper.

* You can use neosporin as long as it is WITHOUT benzocaine pain reliever added.
