My broody was out with her three chicks and Zane's little brother, Mace, is one of them. He's 4 weeks old now. When I went out to check on them, Mace was sitting under a tree by himself, so I picked him up. I noticed his little foot had a scratch so I took him in and put Neosporin on it then returned him to his mama. In a few minutes, I saw that my hand had more blood on it than there should have been so I had a hunch to check Mace over. I found that the skin from behind his skull was ripped in a sheet down the entire stretch of his neck. It seems fairly superficial, perhaps he caught his head in something and pulled it out, ripping the skin. We did not use peroxide and didnt have Betadine, so we just slathered antibiotic ointment down the wound and brought him inside the house. There's vitamins and electrolytes in his water and he'll just stay in a rubbermaid-type brooder till he heals. If there is anything else I need to do, please let me know. I've never had an injury like this before on any of my birds. Thank goodness I had a hunch about him and saw the blood smear on the palm of my hand or he might have been pecked to death by morning! Geez, did I need one more thing to worry about???
