So yesterday my neighbour turns up at my door with an injured, skinny, sorry looking hen.. she’d been for a walk in the forest and found her (it’s England and raining and 11 degrees in the day) so she was pretty beat up.. she looked like she’d been out there a while, boney and flat crop.. and from the injury on her back I can only assume something got her and ran off with her, and she’s been trying to not die out there since.. She couldn’t stand yesterday, and was so dull and lifeless and filthy So I offered her some pellets and she gobbled them up.. since she was filthy and I couldn’t inspect her, I made a nice warm Epsom salt bath, she absolutely loved it and laid relaxing as I massaged her and cleaned her. Then I took her out and dried her and let her sit on my lap, she’s very VERY tame.. and I inspected her. She appears to be in moult, and her new feathers are about 1cm through.. the wound on her back looked black so I’m worried it’s necrotic. I’ve cut all the feathers away near it that we’re stuck in the wound, and I noticed small tiny maggots around the outside of the wound.. so I picked them out, and cleaned her wound edges with hydrogen peroxide (not the wound) to kill any maggots that were there.. I left it 5 minutes then washed everything with warm salt water.. let it dry and put a layer of ‘Brulidine’ on (uk style Neosporin I believe) and put her in a box in the house with nice bedding & a towel on the top. This morning I expected her to be dead, but she’s here chirping away.. she pooped twice, it looks healthy too. Just made her scrambled egg, and got her some cat food (both of which she wolfed down) and she’s drinking real good. Salt water washed her wound again, let it air dry a little then added more Brulidine.. she’s currently laid on me purring (which I’ve never heard!!) she was able to stand a little too, she keeps trying but is wobbly, she’s very very chatty.. so fingers crossed she survives!! also I’m not sure of her breed.. she’s a little like my cream legbar but has no tuft on her head. She has dark eyes and dark lobes..
