Hi Ive had 6 Rhode Island Reds for about a year. My Grandsons Father let me keep them AFTER They moved out for a few months because I Love them! Now that they have settled into their new house the girls have a bigger and better coup. HOWEVER their new puppy bit the New rooster and he has a gaping cut that is exposing his crop entirely! Rudie seems almost normal/fine other than this. My daughter and I have read a few articles about how to stitch this wound but need any advice you may be able to help us with! The crop is completely exposed and he is eating and pooping ( it's been 3 days) and doing fine but again his crop is exposed and now its time to take some action. He allows her to clean it with no problem but the crop has hard and soft digested food falling out and other than cleaning it and trying to figure out which route to take, with steri strips, gauze, to cover, or taking a chance and attempting to close the outside skin. (stitches or glue) without infection or causing more problems. I would say its a center slice about 2 inches and a protuding crop that I dont believe is punctured or maybe it is? Again he seems really pretty good and is visiting the other RIReds he is young and the only rooster. Really need any advice!
