I am hoping to find some kind of guidance, here. I have a hen who was injured, a large gash on the side of her thigh and she is missing a large chunk of skin. That chunk of skin is actually hanging from her body. We have been flushing out the wound and applying ointment and she is on antibiotics. So far, no signs of infection and the wound seems to be healing slowly, but we are perplexed as to what to do with the hanging piece of flesh. There is really no use of trying to suture it back on and the vet told us it would be inhumane to try to remove it. We couldn't afford to have the vet care for the wound so they basically gave us antibiotics and sent us on our way so we are finding our way on our own, which is fine because I am sure this will happen again someday. So what do we do with this chunk of skin, which still has feathers on it? Leave it? Will it eventually die and slough off? Should we snip it off? She is on pain killers from the vet, but it is by no means anesthesia. My gal is doing well, otherwise. Eating, drinking, sleeping, preening, she even laid an egg this morning! She's one tough cookie. We just want to learn as much as we can to help her recover quickly. Thank you in advance!!
