This morning I went out to give out treats, and was startled to see blood on one of my White Leghorn pullets! I looked closer, and saw that her eye was from where she was bleeding. I grabbed her up, and looked more closely. Her eyeball was fine, but she had a decent cut on the lower lid... probably from a pecking order peck down. I brought her inside, putting her in a travel cage, and gathered the first aid supplies. After the initial twitch and squack of being "captured" she settled down and let me doctor her. I cleaned her up with water, but the cut was like a split lip, so I mixed up a little iodine water to clean it. I used a Q-Tip to do the dainty work. Using another Q-Tip, I put some Blu Kote around her eye lid. I don't want the others pecking at her injury and actually getting her eyeball this time! Now she looks like she went three rounds in the boxing ring! Other than the black eye, she is fine. Just call her Michaela Tyson!
