    Something got into the nursery pen and got all our silkie and showgirl chicks. We had a banty roo in there also and he got all his back end feathers torn out. He has a few puncture wounds. Have bathed him and peroxided then neosporin. Remembered I have pen G for my horses but not sure where to give it to a chicken. Can anyone tell me where to inject him.

    Quote:Breast or thigh, switch location every day. Good luck. I had a hen attacked and she had a huge wound on her back. A year later, she is a gorgeous hen who lays daily.
