    My day old chick has a large open wound on his leg. Any suggestion on what I should do to help it. He was a sticky chick and his legs weren't going in the right direction and he has a large wound on his leg joint. I am worried about the wound. Any suggestion on what to do. I am putting topical antibiotics on it. It looks really bad though is there something else I can do?
