Hello friends, I have a chicken who I noticed today kept pecking herself in the same area over and over again. When I checked why she kept pecking, I saw that she has a wound about the size of a nickel or maybe even a quarter behind her wing. You can see inside and you see blood, although she isn't leaking blood anywhere. I quickly put some ointment on the injury in hopes to cure it somehow but she keeps pecking the injury and I fear that she may be making it worse. I'm so worried about her ever since I noticed the injury. She is still eating, drinking, and acting normally, but she does peck the injury often. I still don't know how she got the injury but I assume another animal attacked her and she got away. I was hoping you guys could offer me some information on how to help cure the wound faster and how may I be able to stop her from pecking the injury? Will the injury cure itself even if she continues to peck at it? What should I put on the wound in order to make it heal faster, and how long will it take to completely heal, if it does? I really hope she doesn't pass away from this injury. I don't know how long she's had it because I just realized the pecking now, but I'm really scared that she's going to make the injury worse by continuing to peck at it. Please help! Thanks in advance for taking some time to answer my question.
