Ok, I'm going to clean again tonight before they go to bed. I was going to give her another epsom salt bath. Would that be enough or should I still flush it?That's great! Glad to hear the core came out. Next time you clean it, consider flushing the opening with a saline solution to get any pus or stray bits of the core out.
Ok, I'll continue to do the soaks and apply the neo.The epsom salt bath should be enough. You can flush it with the epsom salt water, if needed.
I flushed them out with warm water after the epsom bath. The EE I originally posted about is doing a great job, letting me wash her feet, flush them out, and leaving the wrap on afterwards. My other EE fights me the whole time and tears the wraps off less than 5 minutes after being loose. Is there a trick to this or am I just stuck with a stubborn bird? I'm wrapping the same on both and 1 girl cant get them off so I'm confused on what to do.If the hole left by the scab is deep, I'd flush it with a syringe full of warm water if no saline is available. I don't know if contact solution is straight saline or if it has additives.
I put my more spirited chickens in the tub and pull the curtain closed. My boys seem to settle down better that way.
