I was sooo happy to find the posts about wounded chickens. It came in handy for us this week. We had 2 chickens killed and others injured by dogs this week. All hens are just under 1 year old. One Sussex hen Rachel managed to escape death and came limping home before dark. I did not notice the deep wound under her wing. The next day, I noticed she wasn't feeling well, and I discovered the wound. We were going to euth her until I found the posts about wound care. The wound was on Weds night, it was discovered and treated Thurs night and again this morning (Fri). The wound is towards the tail end under the wing, and is kind of like a piece of skin missing, and it sort of opens up into a puncture wound, like as you lift the skin, you can see down in a bit (one angling towards the front of the body, and another angling towards the back. I hope that makes sense at least sort of. We followed directions posted here about flushing with dilute peroxide and packing with neosporin. We tried a small t-shirt sleeve bandage, and that didn't stay, so we used gauze. This morning during the bandaging, we noticed maggots and picked them out and flushed and repacked again. Rachel appears to be doing alright. She is mostly sitting, but she appears alert and fights me, and she is eating, drinking, and pooping. She is weak on her feet, but she also has one deformed foot and doesn't walk 100% right anyway. We are feeding her some yogurt and cooked oatmeal along with her regular food. SO, the question is: How often to change her bandage? Hubby thinks 36-48hrs should be alright. I was voting 24hrs for the first few days. I think he doesn't want to stress her any more than necessary. Thoughts?? THANKS!!
