    She's not eating or drinking, and has a small but deep bite on her lower back. It happened at about 1pm on the 13th. What can I do? I have used antiseptic powder, but she still isn't eating or showing any signs of getting better.

    I'm sorry to hear that, [​IMG] I would hand feed her and defiantly wash out with luke warm water NOT COLD , or it will get irritated, then apply Neosporin

    Sorry to hear about the chicken. Keep her separate from the others. Make sure that she is hydrated and gets food even if your have to syringe feed her. Clean out the wound and try to keep it clean. Good luck!
