    Hi,
    Today I found my girl standing on one leg. On close observation, I found that there was a small cut on my girl's leg. There was some blood but it had dried. How do I treat it and what are the common remedies.
    By the way I am from India and we dont have vets who specialise in other animals except dogs!!

    Welcome to BYC!

    How old is the chicken? How bad is the cut? Maybe a dab of neosporin will be ok.

    I think the cut isnt too deep. Probably will clean it with water and apply neosporin tomorrow.

    Hi,
    I am new to this and do not the names of the birds we have in India. Anyway I will be posting pictures of my hen and roo soon so probably the experts out there can help me in identifying the breed. Here in India chickens are known as either broiler chickens or country chicken. Broiler chicken's are the one's used for meat (14 week old birds). Country chickens are the one's that are similar to jungle fowl.
