Does anyone know how can I sedate a chicken with benadryl?
If it is for nothing major, try ice, a towel and 1/2 a baby Tylenol afterward. Is this for bumble foot?
No. Something chewed the fingers off one of her legs. We wanted to stitch them.
Chickens aren't as pain sensitive as humans (towel over head, two people makes it easier). Just be sure to wrap in vet wrap and use an antibiotic to avoid gangrene. And have her get plenty of rest afterward)
We stitched it already. But seems like there is an infection started already. We are giving her antibiotic and put tripple antibiotic ointment. But we left it unwrapped. Seems like when we put her bandage it starts smelling bad.
Chickens usually do better if wounds are left open to drain and stay dry. Stitching a chicken up is almost a sure way to close up bad bacteria inside your poultry and that never ends well..
What should we do to treat the wound?
We cut all the stitching open and got to make some pics
We cleaned as much of the dead flash as possible and being putting the antibiotic ointment on. Does it look like the infection is going up?
Just happened across this post while looking for methods for sedating a chicken.
Did this poor girl survive?
