Hi peeps, So, this morning I walked out to let the chickens out of the run and noticed Lola was bleeding from the top of her head- very fresh wound as the blood was still bright red. I have no idea how it happened as there are no signs of a fight and they were locked up all night- she was acting normal too. So, I cleaned it up (thanks to the great advice of Quail something and someone else in the chat room- sorry I can't remember the names!!! It's been a long day) and isolated her in the house with food and water. I cleaned it with a saline solution and then put neosporine. We found the wound at the base of her comb- and then one smaller slit at the top of one part Tonight when I checked on her, the bleeding had stopped, but now the area around her eye is quite swollen and puffy. Is this a sign of infection or could it just be normal swelling from the injury? It looks like she got in a bad boxing match. If it is infected, is neosporine enough to fight that or should I try some antibiotics in her food water? any ideas? ps. sorry there's not pics right now- I'm going to get them in the morning so I don't have to wake her up.
