    so I have recently discovered my one of my chickens has a 2 by 2 inch wound under her wing it looks like the layer of fat has just been peeled back to her muscles I was wondering how I need to treat it we have her isolated away from the other chickens and she is eating drinking and pecking around like she always does and she does not look like she's in any pain

    One of my hens was attacked by a fox and had a similar wound. I cleaned the wound with warm soapy water. (I used a small amount blue dawn dish soap.) Patted the wound dry and applied some spray on blue kote. I put mine right back with the flock but kept an eye on her as I didn't want her to get exiled and the wound was out of sight of the rest of the hens so I wasn't worried about it being picked at.

    Thanks we are going to get some spray for Jen (the chicken) so it can heal and get better.
