I'm cross-posting an edited down version of the story from the predator's board because I'd like to get some treatment advice..... Last night I went out to check on the chickens and found one of my young pullets missing. [Snip] I found the little lost pullet on the wrong side of the fence (she'd clearly crawled through the hole); she's got a huge wound on the back of her neck - the skin is COMPLETELY gone. Like you can see her "chicken neck" like what you get from the store. It's a big area, maybe 2.5 inches long and 2 inches wide that's missing the skin. It's not torn, it's GONE. She seems fine and is moving around normally, eating and drinking. I pulled her out when I found her and put her in a stall by herself to heal. [snip] As for treatment, I've sprayed the wound with Blue Kote, seperated her and she seems to be doing fine but we'll see. It's a hell of an injury, poor thing! Anything else I should do? There's no way I can close the wound since the skin is completely gone. She's not in shock, though she may have been earlier since I don't know how long ago it happened. Do I need to give oral antibiotics? Anything else I can do for the poor thing?
