    By the way, what is the rule on how old when they go out to the coop?? 5-7 weeks?

    There's no rule. If they have supplemental heat, they can go out pretty much any time. If they don't, you wait until they've fully feathered out. :)

    Ok here's the cut. I really hope I can get that blu stuff and put her back with her friends?

    What's the majority think??

    You could try just putting a bandaid on it since she doesn't have any feathers there.

    So I can put blue stuff on it and let it dry them try small bandaid maybe. I may have one that little.
    You think she will mess with it? I had to put her back in crate and she is MOST upset! Keeps trying to fly out crate door :(

    If you put the blue stuff on it, you won't need a bandaid. The bandaid is a temporary/makeshift solution until you can get the bluekote :)

    She may fuss with it a bit, but if it's on there securely she won't be able to get it off, and she'll quickly get used to it.

    I wouldn't bother with a band aid ...the idea of the blukote is antiseptic and camouflage...a bandaid will just attract attention.

    I'd just dab a bit of the blukote on with a q-tip, just enough to cover the red.
    If you get the spray, spray some in a little cup or spoon and dab from there.

    They may still try to pick, because they pick at everything but should soon stop.

    You might try just putting her back without the blukote since the wound color blends in so well with her leg color.
