    Was wondering if anyone could inform me on how I should treat a cut on the top of my chickens beak. I have Vetericyn, but Shouldn't I be worried about it going in her nose?
    Is this likely a pecking sore? I am new to raising chickens so I'd appreciate some help. Picture attached . Thanks![​IMG]

    G’Day from down under chykfarms [​IMG] Welcome!

    Aaaw, poor little thing .. ouch!

    Sorry, I am not experienced in dealing with a wound of that nature and I recommend posting your question and picture on the ER Forum; the folks there should be able to help you out: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
