    My young hen has a bump on her beak. I put Neosporin on it. What else could I do?

    I have a pullet with one on her eye. I ordered some Terramycin Ophthalmic ointment from Amazon. Tractor Supply carries it too but mine store was out yesterday.

    Ok. Thank you both! I will bring her in and treat her this evening. Should I keep her inside tonite?

    Sorry... hahaha. It actually cleared up all on its own. I'm not sure what or why it showed up, but within a week it was gone. Glad yours is better, too!
