I have a Buff O hen with a large open wound on her side. I am not sure how long she has had it (thanks to Christmas holidays and 12 hour work schedule) I don't know if something got her and she escaped or if it started out as a bad skin tear (from my rooster, who I culled for being so rough) and the other hens pecked at it, but either way I found her yesterday and it is on left side of her back and it is bad. I cleaned as best I could and sprayed it with Vetericyn and bandaged it up. I put her in the dog crate with food and water. I put some liquid antibiotic drops in her water. I got some Triple Antibio cream today. I resprayed the wound and put the Triple Antibio cream on a gauze pad then covered the wound with that and rewrapped it and put her back in the dog crate. Is there any chance that the wound will heal from the inside out eventually? The wound is not just in the skin, it involves muscle also. She is moving around and seems to be eating a little, but I haven't actually seen her drink. I don't want her to suffer, but I do want to give her a chance. Anyone ever have a chicken survive something like this?
