We have a hen with an open wound. This morning when my brother was seeing the chickens, he said that he saw one of the hens with a big cut when her saddle flapped up. We do have a rooster and he likes to jump on her more than the others so it's probably his claws that have done it. We have put her in the chicken run with another hen and I plan on keeping her away from the rooster for the next few weeks until the wound has healed and to stop him doing it again. What I am worried about though, is that what if she dies ? Do you think she will ? I didn't really have a look at the wound but i think it was purple underneath. We put some sudocrem on her but I don't think it's going to help her. Does anyone have any advice ? I checked other threads and they said to use stitches but I can't do that and also someone said that it will keep the infection in. What do i do ?
