HELP!!One of my laying hens was attacked this morning by a few of my puppies (my Heeler had a litter 7 weeks ago) and she has a very large and nasty neck wound and they chewed her butt off! I brought her inside immediately and put her in a small cage with food and water. I left her there for a few hours just to make sure that she wasn't going to die from the shock of it all. She is still alive but seems to be in some pain. She is pooping and eating a little bit but I haven't seen her drink yet. She is mostly just sleeping. I have several antibiotics on hand for my horses and goats.....can I give any to her to help fight infection? If so, what kind of antibiotics are best for wounds? I also read that you can't eat the eggs after they get antibiotics? Any info on that? Also, I saw that you can give a chicken asprin? How much should I give her? Thanks in advance for all of your help!!
