I thought I would share what I am doing for a hen who I believe was attacked by a hawk, which I also believe was chased away by our dog. Anyway, she seems fine, other than she is missing skin on the back of her neck. The blood was dried by the time I noticed her and is just a solid mess. I cannot wash it off as it is too thick. The visible open wounds are completely missing skin. So here is what I did. I bought some saline. It came in a bottle labeled nasal spray. I checked with the pharmacist and it is the same as normal saline. I got a dressing my husband uses for skin tears. It is a prescription and is petroleum based. Sounds odd, but works great for him. I used this where skin was completely missing, putting it into and over the wounds. I also got a pain reducing analgesic cream, and spread it over the caked bloody neck. Not sure if it helps, but should at least soften the blood over time. Furthermore, I bought a 3" wide roll of gauze, some paper and plastic tape. After treating the neck, and placing the petroleum dressings in the wounds as mentioned above, I wrapped her neck all around, with the gauze. In addition, I got some self adhering ace type wrap, which I used to wrap around her wings, so she was more immobile. After restraining her with the ace wrap, I put her on my lap, on a towel. I had all the things I needed laid out. I squirted the saline on her neck, to try and clean the caked blood. I cut off some of her blood caked feathers and treated her as I mentioned above. I make sure I use enough tape to keep the dressing on and still allow her to bend her neck some. The paper tape is more flexible. I do not put it around her neck. Instead, I place it the long way, over end of the gauze (from top to bottom). Then I use 1/4" plastic tape across the back of the neck, to help hold the paper tape in place. Finally, I started antibiotics, putting it in the water for all the hens, since I cannot separate them. So far, this has worked very well. It has only been two days, but so far, things look good. She is eating and drinking and the wounds are not infected. I just thought I would pass this on, as it can be hard to know what to do when a bird is injured and it seems to be working for me, so maybe it will help someone else. By the way, her name is Lacey and she is one of my favorite EE hens.
