Help! My hen has been limping for a few days now so I decided to take a look at her leg. I eventually found (after removing the dirt), a massive & gruesome wound on her leg. Her spur was gone and beside it was this creamy-looking stuff in her leg [that I assume is infection]. I don't know whether it is actually infected, how long she's had the injury for or how she got it. After rinsing her leg, I took a gauze pad, put some antibiotic ointment on it and wrapped her wound up with some vet-wrap tape. I'd like to clarify, with my situation at the moment, I am unable to take a visit to the vet - can I treat her or will she have to be put down? P.S. If I can, I may upload a photo of before I wrapped her wound up, later.
