A chicken with an infection? Dang, I had one that had it's butt ripped out by a possum and it recovered fine. I've never even heard of chickens with infections. We have flies up here that will lay maggots that will clean out any bad flesh. No need to waste anything. If I was going to waste something it would just be some sugar packed into the wound. Chickens heal or they don't and there's not much else to do for them that nature won't.

I have peacocks that wandered into my old farm that I moved to this farm. If I had to grow food without petroleum to run the tractor I would find out what peacock tastes like to save the bird food for the birds that give something more than feathers and big piles of poop.
