Meet Madga, my warrior hen. My gorgeous, brave, tough, strong, enduring, and oh so sweet battle chicken. This purest of souls was put through the ringer on Wednesday when a dog jumped our fence into our coop zone and attacked 3 of our girls (see previous post). Madga is fighting to overcome some serious bodily damage she endured and as tough as she is, it's a long road to recovery. And no doubt, she's a scared and traumatized girl too. The first picture is her this evening sitting on my lap with her new "hair-do". The last picture (yes, it's graphic) shows how a 2 inch tall by 1 inch wide section of her neck was ripped off. As scary/bad/sad you may think it looks, the wound is healing fairly well. She also has a bite wound on her back right side, a bite on the left side of her tail and a gash under her left wing. I've been vigilant about cleaning the wounds, however, the one under her wing is healing slower because it isn't getting as much air. But no infection that I can tell! The vet gave me a blue solution called Clorohex that I dilute in water and use to clean the wounds as best I can, then I spray #vetericyn VF on the wounds. Finally a silver sulfadiazine cream to promote healing. I'm doing this twice daily. I'm looking forward to receiving some CBD/hemp oil and nano silver from my mom to give the girls to promote extreme healing and cell regrowth. Madga, Picatta and Papagena are also receiving antibiotics twice daily and an anti inflammatory once daily.
