I belong to a small local chicken forum in Western Massachusetts and someone posted that they have a roo who has opened the back of her hens several times. Personally the roo would get some stewpot therapy if this kept happening. Anyway, recently he put a 2 1/2-3" wound on a hen's back. She is asking about stitching it up. I thought I had heard of people using sutures they purchased from the vet. I think after the better part of a day it is probably too late to stitch because it must have started to heal over some by now, but for future reference. I asked her to post a pic but nothing yet. What might be an alternative to sutures? Thoughts?
