So, my chickens were banded when I got the them and a friend told me to just leave them on so next year I'd kno which was which when I got new ones. Any way, on of the girls seems to have gotten a swollen leg and the band was digging into the skin. When I pulled it offf her leg started bleeding and her foot was swollen as well. I feel so bad, is there anything I can do about it? I put some anti biotic ointment on it and was thinking of trying soak it in warm salt water as well... Any thoughts would be greatly appeciated! I don't want to have to cull her, she's only 4 mos old.
