    My puppy got ahold of my 5 month old Americauna hen and she pulled a hunk of feathers out and about a 50 cent piece size piece of skin. There are also 2 puncture wounds. I have doctored them with betadine and neosporin. I am wondering if I can give her some penicillin (and how much) to help keep an infection away.

    I'm so sorry! I literally just read on here that honey is good to put on wounds because bacteria can't grow in pure sugar.. My advice would be to just keep it super clean, and watch her. Good luck!
