The chick wore that a week solid walking around with her sisters and when I took it off she was fine. The bandage was a dollar at Big Lots and I kept it on hand for emergencies.

Cool idea!
I just used a half width strip of a regular bandaid, taped her up and popped her in a little nest above the others so she wouldn't get trampled. 36 hours later I removed the bandaid and she's running around with the rest happy to be part of the scrum

I used the bandaid on one but this one just refused to wear it and kept picking it off which is why I went with option 2, lol
