    One of my 20week old chickens almost got its leg ripped off by a dog yesterday. I have it wrapped to its body holding it in place right now and is isolated. There is a large open wound. I am wondering which is better to put on. Vetericyn or blue kote?

    I think I would use Vetericyn. Maybe BlueKote after it starts to heal more.

    Agrees vetericyn first....give air too if you, can rather than covering the wound.

    Asked to move this to emergencies forum, might get more responses there.
