I need help I dibt know what to do
just make sure nothing can do and leave it uncovered, with the things I told you to do for would care, , you said you had wrapped it previously and she looks worse after the wrap was removed by other than you, it is possible what ever you were using to hold the wrap did more damage by pulling feathers out
What are we looking at?
Where is the blood coming from?
Is the bird still alive?
its still alive
i dont know what happened
and the bloood is coming out of its neck (the front side)
Has the bleeding stopped?
Can you get a closer look and see what type of injury it is?
we assume that its done it to itself
it stopped being able to lift its head on friday and i had it wrapped up
then today i saw it in the morning without the bandage and looking like this
Maybe pecked I’m by the other hens? I’m very new
Here is the other thread, for those following:
You've been given good advice on treating the wound.
With nothing else to go on for the not holding it's head up, it's hard to say for sure.
I would try supplementing vitamins in case it's wry neck. Vitamin E (a 400 IU capsule daily) with a bit of cooked egg or tuna for selenium. Since it's so young you may need to give a sliver of a selenium tablet if it won't eat the egg. And a B complex tablet ground up into the food.
Is the chick awake, moving around, trying to be normal? Poops normal? Failure to thrive is possible, also being kept from food an water if it's docile or weak. Dehydration is also a possibility.
More info on wry neck:
I would separate the chick until you know what's going on and until it's not at risk of being hurt more. And I would not wrap the neck. You can use some small rolled towels to prop it on if necessary to help it stay upright, or a chick chair, some examples here:
