    He's beautiful! if he has an open wound try to clean it out the best you can, you might have to trim back his feathers a bit to get to it, use betadine and water mixed to look like strong tea, then apply neosporin w/o pain killer, he should be fine, sorry for his loss, and happy for your gain..

    He is doing strong eating and drinking, the lady at co-op said to give him blue ribbon poultry electrolyte pack the wounds are small they barely break the skin just enough to cause blood the feathers are ripped out and they are the size of half a dime.I cant go to the store because car quick it is simple but our friend just took us to get feed i would hate to turn around and go back.

    Nope but he is handsome, maybe someone else will be able to chime in on breed. Does he have a good temperment? and if his wounds are that small he should be fine you can actually just clean them with soap and warm water, making sure to dry him and also get all the soap off.
