    I just had a chick disappear and found one with three punctures on one side of the body and a small scratch on the other. I think a perigan(sp) falcon got them. What should I do with the one with wounds? They wounds are on the fleshy part of his thigh so I don't think any organs were damaged. Can I neosporin them?

    Yep...that's just what I would do. Keep em clean and keep neosporing on them.

    I'm mad because I left them alone just long enough to come in and use the restroom and they had the cover of trumpet vines. In fact it took me about 20 minutes to find the rest of them they were so quiet and well hidden.
