    One of my chicks cut herself(I think on some wire) She was bleeding on her neck and her toe but I used syptic powder to stop the bleeding. I have separated her in a kennel. But now she is scratching at her wound. How should I take care of the wound? After that can I put her back in with everyone else? She keeps on chirping and is very lonely:(

    I would use some betadine or a a little blukote to color the wound, and put her back in.
