I just found a marble sized abscess on my 8 month old partridge rock female. It looks blue and white on the outside and when squeezed appears painful. I think I saw a few puncture points on the area. I'll try bringing her in to see if I can get some exudate out and what color it really is. I have some tetracycline here at the house. Any one have ideas on how to go about this? Puncture, squeeze and clean? Any ideas on keeping it covered after the fact? Thanks....I'll post pictures soon.
