Chick scratching wound

Recommended Posts

I have a chick on antibiotics and iodine wash for cyst on neck. As quick as the wound scabs and dries she scratches and opens the wound again, sometimes actually making the wound bigger and larger scab. I have tried a collar made of baby sock but she eventually gets it off. I tried a small box that I thought would prevent her getting her feet/claws high enough but she's figured a way to scratch. Does anyone have any experience of this problem and/or a suggestion?

Thanks, Ann
