    Love the green grass, Fancy. Can we have some of that. I am sure Satay would like some too. Dumb question, how big a chick does a full grown owl take?

    No such thing as a dumb question, Rexy. I've only lost one to the owl and she was a full grown bantam. He got her in the hay shed cause she was nesting in there. Btw, this is a very big owl. We
    Found a chick that had fallen from the nest, unfortunately it was dead, but it was already bigger than my chooks. It was her full sister that was taken.[​IMG]

    Your so lucky to have an avian Veterinary down your way. I too would take a wound like that to a vet but we only have a small dog and cat one down here.
    I didn't think combs needed stitches. Combs heal incredibly well.

    Actually she isn't a avian vet lol.. Just a normal vet but had bird knowledge... I was just so lucky she could do it for me... But we do have an avian vet clear by in Brisbane but they wanted to charge me $1200 for the comb removal!!! Crazy!!
    So the vet that I went to she has worked with chickens but this was her first chicken surgery today :) Wilma has come out of it great, she was under anesthetic for 15 mins and had the comb removed and 2 stitches :) she is at home now relaxing and eating like a pig again :)

    So for those wondering, Wilma is out of surgery.. She did amazingly well under anesthetic and is at home recovering well and eating like a piglet! She had the whole comb removed and 2 stitches put in! Should be back to normal in a few days :)
