I need opinions ASAP! We’ve been having hawk issues, we lost one of our young Rouens about a month back. And recently a young rooster, so our flock has been locked up in their coops during the day while we’re gone. My husband usually gets home around 4 and they get to free range until bedtime. Not long at all, but we’re just trying to keep them safe. We have begun to build a large enclosure for them to be let out of their coops during the day. It will be done hopefully tomorrow evening and they’ll be able to be let out Wednesday morning!
On Friday our female Muscovy had blood on her feathers. She was in the coop with our male Muscovy. She cleaned herself up and it appeared nothing had happened afterwards. Well today when we got home it happened again. These pictures are from after she’d cleaned herself up. They have to be cooped up for one more day and we’re scared to leave them together. We have an unfinished coop that we could put one of them in tomorrow during the day, it’s just not predator proof. I need opinions on what we should do to handle this and if there’s anything we can put on her wound to help keep it from getting infected. Please let me know!
