In the Brooder
- Jan 4, 2009
My chicken was attacked by a dog. three inches of skin missing under both wings and back end. I ve read much of what is on the thread and have isolated the chicken to a pen on my porch, washed wounds with peroxide and am keeping them covered with neo-sporin. I am giving polyvisol, yogurt and amoxicillin The chicken is eating and driking and does not appear to feel bad(I dont know why, wounds are horrible, not deep but thigh flesh exposed) This am, one deeper wound teeming with maggots. My question is should I get them out, aif so how? or gross as it sounds, leave them in to clean the dead flesh away as I have read aboutand seen on t.v.. Any help would be appreciated. I dont have ability to send pictures.
