    I just got my first set of chicks two days ago. My dogs just knocked the brooder over and killed eight of my chicks and one is fine and one has a puncture wound under the right wing. She is able to move around and peeps but isn't moving much. Is she a goner? The feed store guy said that if she's still moving around she might make it. Should I put neosporin on the wound? Any thing else I should do?

    definelty neosporin also see if you can wrap the wound some how so it'll reduce batceria infection o and constanely clean her area

    Thank you for your advice. I put neosporin on her and put her in a smaller box with her own feed and water in the main brooder. The other bird was pecking her. I'm going back to the feed store and getting a few more chickies. If she lives my daughters want to call her Lazarus.
    Thank you for your quick response. I was pretty freaked out.
