    My new puppy attacked our chickens a couple of days ago. Sadly we lost 2. The other 2 survived but were pretty badly wounded in the attack. I brought them inside and patched up the cuts. Both are now drinking water and eating but their hyoid bone is sticking out. I have been using betadine and Neosporin but today noticed a green "bubble" under one of their wings and she is limping on that foot. What should I do? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I don't think our daughter can handle another loss! [​IMG]

    Baby asprin(81mg) can be used to reduce the pain as for the healing process get some chicken healing spray at tractor supply.
