    So my chicken was the one that had a big bite out of her neck. She seems to be doing very well. We are putting triple antibiotic cream on her wound and we have been giving her terramycin at first in water but now she is with the other chickens so I have been putting it in a little yogurt. This has been two weeks. How long should we give her these? Obviously the wound is going to take a long time to heal.

    I would lay off the meds now. It should be healed up enough to heal on its own now. Good luck!
