My silke had a NASTY boo-boo on her rump/hip. It was more than likely due to the males (who are ONLY a couple week older than her) trying to mate. She is one of the smallest which is why she probably got hurt and the other females have not. Any way, it looks almost like a diamond shape had been cut out of her skin on her hip. It's about 2 1/2 inches at it's widest part and 4-5 inches long! She isn't bleeding. We brought her in the house and gave her a bath and cleaned the injury with hydrogen peroxide, used Neosporin on it and bandaged her up. Other than seeming tired (NOT lethargic) she is acting fine, walking around a what not. She's eating, drinking and pooping fine. We also put some colloidal silver in her water since we don't have any antibiotics. (Don't worry we are not using much) Other than keeping the wound clean and keeping her inside is there anything else we should be doing? Will the skin find it's way back together? We can't really afford to take her to the vet and have them stitch her up. I don't know. I don't want to lose her, but I can't afford to put my family in the poor house over a chicken. Is what I'm doing fine, and she will eventually get better?
