I've had a hen come to my backyard now for four years, she sleeps up in a tree at night time....Last night a raccoon got her, my husband fought the raccoon until it let her go... Her wound is pretty bad all around her neck and my hubby saw maggots, I called several vets, including my dog's vet and they don't take care of chickens, so I looked up online. It said to wash her with soapy water then rinse her, then saline water, then 50/50 peroxide and water, then iodine, the iodine we were supposed to leave in, last an extra strengh antibiotic creme which has a pain killer. We've done all that, but the hen seems to be in shock, she let's my husband pick her up and wash her with no problem, she used to eat out of his hand before, so she knows him pretty well. I have two concerns, one will this procedure kill or get rid of the maggots for I'm afraid they'll eat her alive, second she is not eating or drinking water. Even though I don't pick up her eggs if she lays them, and the fact that she is not my hen, we've grown to care for her and both of us are very worried. Does anyone know what else I can do to bring her out of shock and get her to eat? Do you guys think the maggots are all gone? My hubby is outside with her right now and we plan to put her in a doggie cage and bring her inside the house until tomorrow...I don't even know if that is a good idea. Will appreciate very much your thoughts, please no mean thoughts, both my husband and I are animal lovers and are always taking care of animals, we even have a dove inside a bird cage because she fell in our back yard and other doves were picking at her, she had a broken wing, and is fine now even though she can't fly. Help us!
