Hi everyone, Meet my new chickens here ! When I got my ladies on Sunday, my Plymouth Rock (Rose) had a cut on her back that was scabbed over. Most likely because she was well loved my the previous owner's roostesr but who knows? She didn't come from good conditions. She still has the cut and we have been watching it, to make sure that it wasn't becoming infected and that her coop mates didn't peck at it. They did the first day home but got over it. But, now it's started up again. What is the best thing to do here? I saw posts about applying duct tape to their back to cover over bare feather spots (which she does have). Could I apply some ointment to her cut and then place the duct tape over top? The cut is not so big as to require stitches but it is about an inch long and very red from the pecking. I've been watching them and I don't think the pecking is constant but it's often enough to open the wound back up. I have tried Gentian Violet to reduce the redness and give it a gross taste but it didn't really work and none of those other options for doing that (some of the powders, etc mentioned here) are available in my area. Thanks!
