    my chicks got crowded and started pecking each other. i've got them all spread out now, but the ones who were injured, i cleaned and sprayed with "wound kote." one of them has been picking at her own injury and now has the wound kote all in her mouth. i wouldn't be worried except that she keeps stopping and making the gape face like it's causing a problem. i tried to get her to drink, but i wasn't successful.

    what do you think?

    Have you read the instructions from the can
    that may tell if its a danger to her.
    maybe use an eyedropper to give her
    a a drop or two of water.
