Hello, I check my chickens every night but went out of town for 3 days and left my chickens in the care of my DH. When I checked on my chickens I realized that one of my BO has a huge skin tear under her wing. I'm sure its from our rooster being too rough. The skin tear is through the thickness of her skin and was packed with dirt. I have spent 4 days cleaning and packing it with wet to dry dressings with betadyne and triple antibiotic. the wound was too old to suture and way too dirty. The dressing I put on it prevents any further harm but i do not know how it will heal. She is very active and is eating and acting normal (Her wing covers the dressing). Can anyone give me some direction on how to take care of this? Much appreciated!
