We are missing our 5 mo. old buff - feathers int he yard - guessing hawk since no blood or any other evidence. 7-8 wk old hen found in the pen w/ one wing removed at the first joint (at the body). Some bleeding. Applying pressure with a clean cloth and antiobiotic ointment (primarily so that we don't pull off any scab that may form). Can you get silver nitrate to cauterize? Is it better to just kill the chick? It will always be pecked at right? Will try to get a pic up in a few minutes here. So very sad to have lost the "mama" buff. She had really adopted these chicks. Added pic - there does not seem to be any injury other than the missing wing. The blood seems at this point to all be from the wing being removed. Can I clean it with maybe bottled water? I have some jugs of distilled & some of drinking water. Also have peroxide and alcohol (like tequila or vodka I think - don't drink much lol).
