Needing some guidance for my injured chicken. Yesterday, a dog broke through the chicken wire in our coup, killed one chicken and seriously injured Annie, one of our other chickens. The wound on Annie's back extends from the bottom of her neck down to her mid back and down her right back going under her wing. The underside of her wing has been plucked clean but no apparent wounds to the wing itself. The wound on her back is much more HORRIFIC. The layers of skin and fat were mauled down to the muscle and there is even a large chunk of muscle that was eaten off. We contemplated putting her down but after pulling her out of the coup and setting her in the yard, she began grazing. Annie let me clean her back with antiseptic spray and apply Neosporin. She's eating, drinking, and pooping still. I initially wrapped the wound with gauze but then removed it due to the gauze sticking after only a few hours. I'm not sure what to do. Even though she's still eating, etc, does she have a chance? Infection is inevitable, especially to the part of the wound that extends under her wing. It is warm and moist under there which is a breeding ground for bacteria. I don't know how to keep that area aired. The entire wound is about 3.5 inches long , 5 inches wide. I cannot afford to take her to the vet. My questions are: 1. Any advice on antibiotics and what works best? 2. Keep the area open or covered? (I've read in different forums and some said covered, some said open.) 3. How many times per day do I need to clean it? 4. What solution is best to clean it with? 5. Diet? (She's been eating scraps of cucumbers, carrots, scrambled eggs and greek yogurt along with her chicken feed and water.) Any other suggestions?? 6. How can i keep her wing propped up to get some air circulating under it? 7. Does she truly having a fighting chance or am i delaying the obvious? These are my primary questions. I know there are more but can't think of any at the moment. Annie stayed inside our house during the night and will remain there for awhile. Any advice is very much appreciated.
