In the Brooder
- Feb 28, 2019
I went out to my coup today after i got home from my golf match (i’m still in highschool) and i went to go spend time with my chickens. She sat on my lap for a good 20 minutes and let me pet her and sing to her and was being so good. It wasn’t until she got up to get some water that i noticed a chunk of her was missing . I examined the wound a bit and it seems like something got in the cage within the last day or two ago. Their food was all over the place and their waterer is leaking so i’m assuming my rooster put up a good fight. None of my other chickens were harmed at all and are doing okay. This chicken wasn’t acting like anything was wrong and didn’t seem in pain. I made a saline solution and sprinkled it over her wound and then dried it. There was no blood coming off and she didn’t wince when i cleaned it. Tomorrow morning i’m going to cut up a t-shirt and wrap her with it and some gauze. Please give me suggestions on what else would help!! The wound is right under her wing and is covered by it.
