    My chickens are currently moulting and today I noticed one of my NH Reds has a clotted scab at the base of what I think is a new feather shaft on one of her primary wing feathers. It currently is not bleeding. I have read some people advise pulling them but I wonder if just applying some blue kote would be ok.
