    long story short.... my big girls got through the baracade and in with my 10 week olds. One of the babies got wedged TIGHT and the girls proceeded to peck a hole in her side! [​IMG]. i put lots of Neosporin on it and isolated her. The next day it looked better but now I think I see some greenish flesh. Is this normal?? Is there any antibiotics that I can treat her with, beside the Neo?? Thanks for your help

    that may just be bruised skin, do you see a pocket forming? any smells, puffy spots like an abcess? if not I bet it is a bruise, they look greenish. keep her separated until she is fully healed, she should do fine
