BYC...I need some advice... I just came home from college on spring break and I noticed that one of my birds has a pretty large cut on her head. She is a buff orpington in a flock of 5, and they have always gotten along. I'm ruling out predator because it is only a cut on her head and no other bird is affected. I looked for signs of blood in the coop and I was not able to find any. She may have cut her head open on something causing the others to react. Anyways, there was no violence when I initially saw the wound, and for the past four hours the flock has been tame. There is some dried blood around the cut, but for the most part it looks like whatever caused the incident has subsided. The opening is larger than a quarter by a little and it appears that there is a laceration on the skin between the head and the neck. When she is not craning her neck or stretching the opening is not noticeable. The other birds have clearly seen it and are no longer/not interested. I am not ruling out that she got her head cut on a wooden edge or possibly on the front door of the coop. I am not sure though. It also could have been the birds pecking at each other. Maybe a combo, but I cannot be certain. Anyways, aside from cleaning the wound regularly, what other advice do you guys have?? She laid an egg today, so stress doesn't seem to be affecting her. She is eating, drinking, and socializing with the other birds. She let me pick her up. She didn't scream. I tried to cover, but that seemed to upset her and arouse the curiosity of the other birds. I removed that, cleaned again with soap, water, and antibiotic solution on the cut. What else can I do. I have posted a picture. Thanks. Any suggestions welcome.
