    I was told that Aloe vera gel is chicken glue. Clean the wound and get as much aloe vera gel as possible in the wound. It will keep the wound hydrated and seal it from the outside. is this true?

    I haven't tried Aloe Vera, but it sounds like it would work, and probably have some good healing properties as well.

    I have used just normal thread to sew up a large chicken wound (soaked in vodka first to help sterilize it).

    Also, super glue works well at sealing wounds, I have used that on people.
