She was fine when I put her away last night. She is 5 1/2 weeks old and has just one companion in her pen -- a chick the same size. I saw no evidence of where her injury came from -- no blood in the pen, no blood on the other chick. At any rate, I don't think I can wash it since it's under her throat and on one side of her head, and part of her neck. The skin looks scraped off as if it was peeled away and is very raw. It's definitely a serious injury, but if I tried to wash it and clean it I fear it would get worse because it's so the throat wound is so fragile and I know she would fight every step of the way. The blood has already dried and she is very difficult to keep still -- I have separated her into her own pen. She "seems" kind of OK, walking and chirping, but she's scratching a bit at her own neck with her toes and she's trying to crane her beak down to pick at it but can't quite reach it. I wish I could keep her from doing that. If I put her in a tightly confined space I think she'd fight it and make it worse too. I am thinking the best chance she has is to be left alone in her own clean pen and for me to let it heal on it's own. I could give her avian antibiotics and vitamins. Any suggestions?
