    Clean him up! Maggots off, gentle soap and water & then some neosporin or triple antibiotic. How old is the chick? Does it seem ok otherwise?

    Quote:Yes he is active and running around. but I know how fast the maggot can clean a little body. he is only a few days old.

    Did you clean her off? How does it look? Is there a wound? If she is active & appears healthy then she might be ok after she is cleaned. Good luck to both of you!

    got it cleaned out. I pulled ten maggaot from its little body. I missed one I had to use twissers. One got away. [​IMG] I couldnt find it . She has a hole where her eggs sack was I put anitbonics on it so maybe that will kill the last maggot I hope..
