    I know I should have worn gloves. .. I didn't count on the sprayer being broken. Anyone had luck getting blu kote off?

    Been there. Done that. I decant the Blu-kote into a small bottle and use a Q-tip dipped into it to paint the solution on the skin. Beware of treating combs. Wear a rain coat. The chicken will feel the cold wetness and shake their head, sprinkling you liberally in the face with the purple stuff.

    If you want to get rid of the stain quickly, rub sink cleanser with bleach into the stains, but rinse it off quickly so it doesn't eat your skin off.

    If you find anything that cleans it off let me know. I spend most of every spring with purple fingers :lau

    I don't know if you have such things in the US but I use a Green Pad that you scrub dishes with for stuff like that. Failing that a drop of rubbing alcohol and a cloth should shift it.

    Gardeners have a "green thumb". Chicken folk have a purple one.

    Time and patience - be careful what you touch when using Blu-Kote.
