Upstate NY Chicken Mom

post #1 of 7

Hello from Guilderland, NY! I was hoping for advice on my Black Australorp's infected comb. She was pecked by the flock, poor girl. Should I use Vetericyn?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run. Good luck with your girl. Poor baby, hope she gets to feeling better. That just looks painful.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

I think you can use the Vetericyn on her comb and then maybe paint it with Blu-Kote so the other birds aren't drawn to the injury and keep pecking at it.

 

Hope she heals up quickly!

What shame,  such a beauty and she has to put  up  with such insolence. I also agree with the Blu Kote.   Is it just one bird that pecks her, or all of them?  Is she new to the flock?

 

If so she has to be integrated slowly - the" look but don't touch method."  If not and the others continue to bother her, you can get "pinless peepers," for them.   It prevents birds from seeing straight ahead so they  aim is off.  Put" pinless "peepers in the search box to find out about them.

I don't know who the culprit is. I've never witnessed her being pecked. They are all "sisters" who have been together since they were chicks.
