Well, today was one of those days, and in this video I show you how to help a wounded chicken.

One of our neighbor’s dogs got loose and got one of our roosters. The chicken is doing well, but definitely needed some help.

He lost a LOT of feathers (no tail feathers left!) and had some bite wounds on his back.

In this video, I show you:

  • How to help a wounded chicken (demonstration on a real, live chicken)
  • My favorite recipe including oregano essential oil and coconut oil
  • Why a chicken saddle isn’t the best idea when a rooster looses his feathers
  • How to know when to isolate a wounded chicken

(A lot of you ask which oils I personally use. Here’s everything you need to know!)
