    I am so sorry [​IMG] could you get some antibiotics at your feed store? Try to keep the wounds clean and if you can put him by himself so no one else peck at him. I am sorry I couldn't be more help.

    Well i'm petting him on my lap right now, but yes I will. It looks more healed from last night when it was gushing blood. I just got done cleaning Godzilla (that's his name) and it still hurts him poor baby [​IMG] [​IMG]
