In the Brooder

I have done all of that and cleaned and rinsed it out. Will it heal on its own or will it need stitches?What do you have in the house for first aid? I would try cleaning it first with hydrogen peroxide or saline and then bacitracin ointment on it. Use a clean qtip.
It will heal. Don't use peroxide, it kills healthy cells and slows healing. I would just keep it clean with saline and I like to use, vetericyn spray. Watch it closely for signs of infection. You could also use BluKote, it has an antiseptic in it, so the others don't keep pecking.
