    My 6 week old chick got threw the fence into the rooster pen
    Not a big injury at all just pecked on the head my brother saw it stoped it very quickly
    It is bleeding. Some of the skin is gone
    I cleaned it with water dryer it and put flour on it to stop the bleeding
    Have her in a cage in the garage she doing really well not really acting like she has been injured

    She really doesn't like being alone

    Was wondering if it will hurt if I put her back with the other 6 week chicks
    And how should I keep it clean
    How long it will take to heal[​IMG]

    It's probably best to keep her separate as long as she has a wound that looks red, as the other chicks will peck at it.

    I have used either Nustock or Rooster Booster No-Peck on wounds. Got the Nustock at my local feed store. They help to heal, and make the wound either bad tasting or purple-colored so they won't attract pecking.

    Chickens can heal pretty quickly from some pretty nasty looking wounds.

    Update she is doing really good
    She has become my best chick friend she follows me around everywhere and eats out of my hand
    I let her go visit the other chicks
    For alittle bit a day
    But still have her separate till the wound is almost close
