    Sorry about your chick's injury. Could you give some more details about the injury, and what you have done so far? Where is the injury? Bleeding may be stopped with gentle pressure at the bleeding site for several minutes. Make sure that it stops before you try to clean or disinfect it. Betadine, chlorhexadrene, peroxide, and plain soap and water can work to clean a wound. Application of an antibiotic ointment can help to prevent infection. If you have Vetericyn, it is a wound disinfectant where nothing else has to be applied.

    Very sorry for your loss. It is common to lose chicks if they become injured.
