    It seems as though my 4 week old here, who is most likely blind,(she hatched on day 23 and we called her Surprise) got herself caught between the gate and fence and seriously shredded her head. It looks as though only the feathers were removed, no wounds to the eyes.....I have done the normal, wash the wound and applied hydrogen peroxide and she is in the house now in a separate crate with food and water. Anything else I should be doing?

    Wouldn't use anymore hydrogen peroxide. Spray it with Vetericyn, and coat it with Neosporin 1st aid antibiotic. Wouldn't hurt to cook her a few scrambled eggs or something.
