Help my girl has an abscess on her left leg. At least i think its an abscess. Her leg is swollen and she has opened it. Tissue and blood are whar is on the gauze when i change it. Ive cut her geathers away from the spot and keep applying neosporin before covering with gauze. She can walk on it and it does not seem to be warm to the touch. I dont have enough money to take her to the vet and im afraid they would tell me to put her down. Not an option. Ive healed a hen who had been scalped by the other hens. So i feel i can do this. I would just like to know what it is and is there something else, besides oral antibiotics, i can do for her.
