We just noticed yesterday that one of our chickens, Ms.Bob, had multiple wounds to the legs. We aren't sure when it happened. Our dogs have always been fine in the backyard with the chickens, but we think recently our border collie has been periodically biting her legs. She had a lot of dried blood, some black tissue, puncture wounds, and a green area. We took her to an emergency vet last night. They prescribed an antibiotic for 10 days (don't have them on me right now or remember the name) and advised us to leave the wounds alone. The vet said chicken skin is too fragile to clean, and that the nasty parts will slough off on their own. Is this right? I feel like we should be flushing the wound and trying to keep it moist, applying ointment, etc.. I was thinking of letting her soak in a saline or epsom salt bath to try and loosen some of the dried stuff. I thought she was a goner, as the tissue seems necrotic, but the vet said the green part is bruising or resorbing of the blood. We have Ms. Bob inside and she is quite alert. She is eating and drinking a lot. Also, her legs are very hot to the touch. Does anyone have any advice?
