I have a 5 to 6 week old ameraucauna, who managed to get out of her pen today when I wasn't home. The skin from the back of her head, all the way to the base of her neck is gone. (Maybe 1 inch X 2 inches) It's hard to tell the size depending on how she oholds her neck. I did clean it out and put neosporin on it, she is drinking electrolyte/vitamin solution. I'm thinking that the very protective broody hen I have may have done this, (she doesn't like my two young pullets) and I know she broke my skin on my hand when I was checking for eggs underneath her a few weeks ago. So should I stich it up, or just leave it open? The skin will not actually stretch enough to cover the wound, but it will make the wound appear smaller, and possible heal more quickly. Maybe I should attempt to take a photo.
