    by a 2 inch spur. Didn't go that deep but it is definitely a puncture wound. Just to the right of the meaty part of my shin. What should I do???

    Just clean it out really good with Peroxide and then put some triple antibiotic ointment on it. It should be fine.

    hmmm, can you get tetanus from something like that? I don't know, but someone might.
    Other than that flush it like was recommended and cover w/ antibiotic oint. Watch it for infection, the potato trick really does work

    Quote:Yeah I know. Cull. I asked Dh to take him to the farm supply. I turned his eggs 5 time a day in the bator. He is one beauty of a bird. This is not the first time. He has made contact before only not as bad.

    I have a Silkie rooster that tries to flog me all the time. Until I found out what your supposed to do when they flog you. I was told that when he flogs you, you chase him around the yard until he runs away from you and when you do chase him do it for a few minutes until he is running away and not coming back. And DON'T turn your back on him when your done. This stopped my rooster from flogging me. Cause when he flogs you he is challenging you as flock leader and you need to step up and say who's boss around here! Hope you feel better soon and hope this advice helps you! [​IMG]
