My roo scratched up an ant hill. He got bit on his feet an few times. What do I do? Just leave it?
You can give him children's Benadryl if he starts to have a reaction to it (swelling or difficulty breathing). Between 1 and 2 ml/cc should do the trick (go with 2 for a more severe reaction). It will make him sleepy. Otherwise, you can soak him in warm water with epsom salt to relieve minor itching.
Edited to say: Make sure all of the ants are off of him. They hide well in the feathers.
Thanks if he starts itchin I'll give him the soak
