    [​IMG] In one of my coops, I have one Rhode Island red rooster with 4 hens. One hen is a Gold Laced Wyndotte and the other three are Rhode Islands.
    My problem is... The three hens have raw spots on the tops of their wings at eh back area. I found no bugs. I figured it was from my rooster gettin frisky, so I popped off his huge spurs.
    I thought this would let my hens heal, but they are still raw with bald spots on the base of the wings. Is there any kind of special ointment to promote the feathers to grow
    and keep their skin moist? Kimberley in Wedgefield
