    Scared to Stress Him Out

    I'd try covering his head with a towel to keep him calm. May require a helper to restrain him while you clean the wounds. I'd clean the wounds with warm salt water. Disinfect them with peroxide and dress the wound with neosporin.

    In certain respects I think chickens are similar to people. Gorda was always sick as a pullet but is now a dominant healthy hen and to an extent she watches over our tiny brown Silkie hen who is far smaller than our other girls.

    Check out these ducklings

    We have 2 Pekin drakes and a runner hen. The hen is hatching some eggs and a couple of the ducklings have dark colors. Is it possible a wild drake mates with our hen?

    Duck attacked by fox, looking for first aid advice!

    Yes, for cleaning wounds on our ducks and chickens we use hydrogen peroxide to disinfect after cleaning with warm salt water. I'd recommend getting it to a vet if you can. So they could give an oral antibiotic.

    Duck attacked by fox, looking for first aid advice!

    Clean with warm saline water then peroxide. Dress the wound with neosporin or triple antibiotic salve. Maybe crush a baby aspirin and mix it in water for him. I'd take him to a vet if possible.
