i have an open wound i need to tend to on the lower back of my silkie girl. it is appr 3/4" long, open and not bleeding. hawk got her and cannot find my roo - found her feathers but none of his, so not sure if he is hiding. was thinking of trimming away feathers and using a steri strip to close up the wound to let it heal. farmer supply recommend bag balm as ointment to cover wound and keep flies out. also putting her in isolation until it doesn't look tempting to other hens. a cage will be used in the basement away from flies, etc. any other things i should consider? all other girls and babies (15) are inside their run. please respond! i'm checking this site every 30 minutes.
