    I am giving her antibiotics in her water, she's eating and drinking and pooping. But... her wounds are a little stinky and I'm planning on cutting her feathers around the wounds today and putting some peroxide on the wounds along with saline solution. I am also giving her aspirin from time to time for the pain.
    Sounds good or do I need to take more precautions?

    What happened?? Did she get attacked or something?? Add vitamins to the water also with the antibiotice, feed her yogart. Sounds to me like you are on the right track!!!

    Some animals ( so many predators to choose from) bit two chunks out of her to point that you see the meat [​IMG]
    how long do you guys think she gets healed completely?
    Oh and she's limping I guess because the wounds on her thighs.

    Sounds good, but is she stinky like poop, or stinky like infection??? Poop is not bad, but infection is! I suggest blu kote, which is an antibiotic you can get at pretty much any feed/farming store.

    I think it's infection, how do I know it's infected other than the smell?

    If there is pus or it just doesn't look healthy. I would give her antibiotics in her water. It may take a few weeks....
