    My broody hatched two little chicks last night. Well I just went to find her off her nest with just one chick. I went towards her nest and found the other a couple feet from in hidden in the grass. It has a wound where the leg meets the body and a hurt leg. I saw little white worms in the wound but I can't get them out. I got a syringe and squirted water to see if it would get them out and it didn't work is there any thing else I can do to get them out ??!! Please help!!!
