I appreciate everyone’s honest opinions on both sides. I did decide to try to save it. Upon cleaning, what I thought was insides was the hip joint. I put antibiotic ointment over the whole wound, started electrolytes solution and gave a part of a low dose aspirin. All vets are closed today and the farm store didn’t have on hand any of the types of antibiotics that I have seen mentioned for poultry. She’s eating and drinking and staying in the “hospital cage” in the house. Tomorrow I will inquire at the vet office that works with farm animals to see what antibiotics I could get there.
