The wound now looks a dark, dark blue/purple and seems to really not attract attention.  Thanks for the suggestion.  I think the chicks will be OK.

That sounds better than the spray anyway. Glad to hear it's working. Good luck!

Update- the pulleys are doing fine. The wounds are healing and they are now in their own coop.
