I have an Americana hen with an abscess.The abscess is on the left side of her face where her beard\muffs should be. Sadly, she has very little muffs\beard do to fighting in the coop. I have caught the abscess in an early stage it is still small,but getting bigger every day. I have her separated from all my other chickens in a cage in my garage. I have her on a medicine called Sulmet. That I got from my local Big-R. I was told by one of my local 4-H club members to put her on this medication. Tonight I went and looked at the bottle and looked at what is says it is suppose to cure and now realizing that it does not cure abscesses. I need some advice on what to do now,and how to cure it. Thanks for reading.
