Gimpy Chick cheated death tonight again for the third time. I think she's going to be okay. But I have to believe she's anemic at this point (this is the second time she's bled out to the point of incoherentness) what can I do to get her iron count back up? And... that thing on the side of her head- it bleeds like holy hell fire- thats how she keeps bleeding out, some are calling it proud flesh, some are calling it an abcess, but theres no sign of infection. It just bleeds when its punctured or scratched. Its hard and its like a huge blood blister atop her ear thats the size of a baby lima bean and it wraps around to the back of her skull. Is there anything I can do to help it heal or go away? I had put blukote on it yesterday, and it probably itched from healing or something and she scratched it open. I took the tip of her toe nail off on that side, the one coated in blood from scratching it open, and filed it blunt so hopefully we dont have a repeat of such a thing. I am including really pathetic pictures. She looks even worse in real life, and this is AFTER I hand cleaned her up. The inside of her tupperware home looked like a chicken exploded in it... Poor gal. I've never been attached to any small creature- but I actually feel like I could conjure up a tear for her. I feel bad for the poor thing- she thinks I can fix her.
