It’s a fact of life that chickens don’t always stay in their cage. Unfortunately, when they get out of their cage they may suffer an unpleasant encounter that leads to an injury. Here is Mrs. RW’s chicken repair tip.
Repairing a chicken isn’t too hard if the injury is not too significant and the damage is fairly slight. One of the first things you need to do is separate the injured chicken from the main coop. A small dog cage works well for this purpose. This keeps the other chickens from pecking at the injury and causing further damage which will slow the healing process. They will also need to be brought into a more controlled environment to avoid them stressing out due to temperature changes or other weather-related events.
You also need to make sure they have sufficient food to eat and clean water to drink. You will also need to add vitamins and electrolytes to their diet to help speed the healing process. This usually comes in a water-soluble powder that can be mixed into their drinking water. A small bottle of this powder goes a long way and the electrolytes can be used to help speed up the healing process of your injured chicken.
