We have a loving pair of lavender silkies (roo and hen). They were attacked early this am or late last night. We aren't sure what got after them but we caught a squirrel fighting with our roo this afternoon. We waited until this evening to fully check them out when we moved them to a more secure coop (so not to stress them). Upon checking we noticed the roo has a quarter size "hole" in his side under his wing. And our hen has several small puncture wounds under her wing. The hen actually acts worse as she doesn't move a whole lot and acts very fatiqued. She was actually brooding 9 eggs ( all messy from poo and gunk no) when this apparently happened. By the time we got everything completed the stores in our area with chicken supplies were all closed. I gave them the vitamin/electolyte supplement in their water, clipped messy feathers out, and offered them the medicated chick food we had. Am I wrong to offer the medicated chick food?? I was just thinking it probably couldnt hurt since it was all I have this evening. I was reading through the forum and thought some cooked eggs and protein would be good in the AM to promote wound healing. I was reading about antibiotics- can anyone tell me where/ how to administer these and which is best. I can definetly get either betadine or peroxide - which would be better?? Somoneone mentioned stiching bad gaping wound- but do roosteres hold pretty still as well. i just imagine the pain it must cause and am a little nervoud about this but would if it would help save my roo.(as they have been together since hatching and one would probably not do well without the other. How often should we clean the wounds?- The hen also acts "stiff " or sore when walking, cant find anything on her feet or legs just between legs/wings? Any suggestions on double checking areas for bigger damage? Anything I should keep an eye on other then eating and drinking ?? - Thanks for the help in advance!
