I found on of my 5 month old pullets last night with a large laceration on her neck right over her crop. It's a clean cut, several inches wide and all the way through the skin. Her crop was full last night, which pulled the skin open even further. I figured I should try to close the wound somehow, but I don't didn't know if chicken skin is tough enough to hold a suture and I didn't figure medical tape would do any good with all the feathers. So I just put her in her own cage for the night. This morning, she seems to be feeling pretty well, eating and drinking and wanting out of her cage. Will a wound like this heal? Should I be feeding her any antibiotics to combat infection? Should I try sutures?
