    Hey guys I still don't know how to change thread, but my grandma hen iggy got attacked by dogs and I found her flipped over stuck in a swamp while the other five her hiding and one died. We have been taking care of iggy for a while with three puntcher wounds and today I looked at her wound and it was brown and her skin was caved in a bit and I started to think she had some kind of skin disease or something, we bought vedericen for it. And have been spraying her three times a day idk what's happing with her skin.

    She looks to have a bad infection from bacteria, puncture wounds generally cause this. She needs a vet treat her and prescribe meds.

    I agree with @drumstick diva, it would be best to take her to a vet. They will be physically able to examine her and prescribe her the meds she needs.
    Why can't you take her to a vet? Not trying to be rude, but just wondering. :) Even if she's acting normal, it doesn't mean she's feeling normal and isn't sick.

    I looked at it closer and it's a scab over top of her puntcher.

    Oh, I see. :)
    Okay, that's good. There might still be something you can put on it to make it better, but I'm not great with wounds so I'm not sure what that might be.
