We are raising four chicks in our house inside a rabbit cage using a heating lamp and covering it up with blankets. The problem is that the cats (there are 3) are always staring at them, but we thought it wouln't be a problem as they cannot get inside the cage. Somehow, though, our youngest cat reached her paw inside the cage far enough to scratch the smallest of the chicks right above her tail. We washed her scratch with peroxide and added neosporin on it when she was dried off. She seems to be eating and acting normally, not distressed. Meanwhile, the cage is now fully covered up so that the cats cannot reach inside. Will she recover quickly from this, or does she need to be separated from the other, bigger chicks to avoid them pecking at it? We were mostly worried about something red (not blood, but solid like a vein?) attached to where she was injured. It seems to have mostly gone away by now, but we still don't know what it was or if it is a bad sign. Please respond with any knowledge or advise you have about this situation. I could not find anything related to our problem online, and we'd appreciate some input. Thanks!
