some critter ripped out all the tailfeathers and it cut my chickens vent. what should i do? there was alot of blood.. umm. i put blue kote on it. shes in a dark place in my room for now, what else can i do for her?
how bad is the cut?

can you post a picture?

for now..
separate the hen to a warm safe place.
using a squirt bottle, wash the vent with diluted betadine.
apply antibiotic ointment (preferably polysporin)

give electrolytes to help treat shock and stress...available at most farm/livestock stores...
brand name..durvet if you can get it.
also give poultry vitamins.

until you are able to get the electrolytes and vitamins,
give a little diluted pedialyte or gatorade.

give extra protein, such as cooked chopped egg mixed with layer feed.

do you have any antibiotics?
she seems to be feeling better, shes trying to fly out of the box i had her in.
I put someneosporin on the cut. i can take a pic later on when my cousin can hold her. My major concern has turned to her poo. its mostly white diarrehea.
