    This may be a stupid question, but I figure what's the harm. My rooster just "hit" me and gave me a good cut. Should I do anything special other than a warm soapy wash and normal disinfectant? Hurts like the dickens, think he may have hit a nerve in the back of my hand. He hasn't liked me ever since I had to catch him to move him from the tiny coop we started out with to the nice large yard and coop we have now. I didn't realize at the time I could have just opened the door and he would have just gone to his hens

    I would wash it with warm water and put neosporin and a band-aid on it. No such thing as a stupid question. Sounds like your roo needs to wind up in the pot, if you ask me. [​IMG]

    Maybe so but I've never been able to kill anything unless it's suffering and he does a good job of protecting his hens so I'll just be more careful from now on. Thanks for the advice!
