can someone tell me the best way to treat this?
Clean the wound and then make some this to put on if you're putting her back in with the flock right away:
Blue food coloring (use natural vegetable-based dye, if you're concerned conventional dye)
Lemon essential oil
Whisk several drops of blue coloring and and several drops of lemon essential oil into a bowl of honey. Store the solution in a glass mason jar, squirt bottle or dispenser. You can dab the solution onto wounds or areas missing feathers with a cotton ball or squirt the solution over a larger area.
If keeping her separate, just make sure it stays clean and put some kind of antibacterial solution on it!
May I ask how this happened? I would use Blue Kote on that!
This is definitely a case for blue kote. Spray on liberally and it does the rest.
If you do not want to get that, a good soap sud rinse to clean the wound well and gauze wrap to keep it covered and protected.
The key will be protection and prevention of the area from future attacks and further damage.
Just the others picked on her
We got blue kote. She is separated for now. It’s a lil stressful here cause our coop came 5 weeks late (the builder screwed that up)
They are in really close quarters at the moment.. but we just got the coop... so we’re frantically working to get it built inside and out!
