    My 5 month old chicken got pinned between the run and the house , I had to cut her out with wire cutters. She has multiple wounds. This happened on Thursday, 5 days ago. The wings were a lot more purple a few days ago so that's good. But I'm more concerned with the gash that I threw a few stitches through. I saw a big wound and panicked and stitched her up and now I'm wondering how I am going to take them out. And does anyone have any medicine recommendations? [​IMG]. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    betadine (organic iodine) for wounds, then an eye type triple antibiotic.
    You should be able to snip the stitches and slide them out.
    After 5 days, she should be about healed.
