One of my chicks had somehow wedged itself between the back wall and chicken fencing lining it in the leanto(still can't figure out how) and sliced open the skin on top of her head. No one luckily has taken advantage of her situation to pick at her so it is a clean slice of the skin and no meat damage. So far I have cleansed it, neosporined it, and pulled it back together the best I can with one hand with butterfly tapes, as no one else is home right now. But when my DD gets home was wondering if I can sew it together with a sterilized needle and regular thread or do I need surgical thread? Would a pharmacy have that stuff? Guess I could call and find out.
