I've read several posts about people using Blu-Kote on scratches and bare backs and such. Two of my hens (one more than the other) are becoming bare backed due to our rooster -- they are his favorites. We've recently made saddles for the both of them, but one of them has raw scratches on her back and I wanted to put something on it. After reading a bunch of posts about it, I picked up some of this: And I just wanted to make double sure that this is the same stuff you guys are using? They didnt have the spray version, only the liquid with the dauber in it. Another question out of curiosity... I know it will serve as a wound dressing, but by any chance does the color of it covering up their bare skin help deter others from pecking? Or do they just know a bare back is a bare back, regardless of the color? If it makes any difference, one hen is a solid black sex link, so her bare spot is very obvious and draws attention, the other is a RIR.
