Hi Everyone, I need some help with my first chicken injury. My Sadie is a orpington bantam and she is 24 weeks this week. She got caught in a fence due to something that scared her and she rubbed her head and neck back and forth until she rubbed all ther feathers off to raw skin on the back of her neck. She also has brusing around her right eye and swelling on the left one (I'm thinking from the force of rubbing the sides of her head on the fence). Her beak is cut slightly across the bottom of her nostrils when I found her Sunday morning. I immediately cleaned her neck with betadine and neosporin. Her eyes were closed and I wiped them with warm water and some gauze. I cleaned her beak and assessed her all over and thankfully didn't find anything else. I crated her in my house with some food and water blankets and a heat lamp in a low lit place to prevent her from going into shock. All day I dropper feed her some water every hour or two and cleaned her wound. Yesterday (Monday) she drank some Gatorade I bought from the store and she perked up and associated my voice by tilting her head toward me. She still doesn't open both eyes. Just the right one. I took her outside to the coop to socialize a bit with her flock and she tried to scratch the ground but she was to cold and weak. However she did get a bit of energy and she scratched the bottom of the crate looking for food with her right opening just a bit. I had to help put the feed dish up to her mouth because she isn't using both eyes. She ate enough to lay an egg in the crate which surprised me. I was so happy to see her improvement. Today (Tuesday) My Sadie was showing signs of less energy. She still won't try to eat on her own even though I help her. I've tried to dropper feed her crumble mixed with sugar water to a soupy paste and feed her and even tried hard boiled egg yoke with a little water mixed to dropper feed her. Nothing. Her right eye is tearing now. So I wiped it softly with warrm water and gauze. Sadie is responsive and I know is still weak, very sore, scared, and tired and I pray for her eveyday hoping each day will get better. I don't know what to do about her not showing signs of wanting to eat or drink. I've tried everything by tapping touching the feeders to her beak to show her its there but still nothing. She will only take the dropper. Please help!
