    I would put some hydrogen peroxide and then diluted iodine all over it to help cleanse it. You than can put on neosporin the help it heal and prevent bacteria, that is what I have been doing for my wounded hen. if you think it might be infected it would be good to put her on penicillin or a penicillin related antibiotic. I would be best not to cover the wound with bandages because you want it to air out.
    these are really helpful articles [​IMG]

    I had a few ducks attacked by a dog, I seperated them and put some honey on them. They healed fine and are fine
