The back of my hens neck is pretty cut up. The other chickens pecked at the back of her neck until a good 1 inch by 1/2 inch spot was bare. I've been cleaning it with hydrogen peroxide and putting neosporin without pain relief on it. She doesn't seem to mind just want to get her healed up asap.

I've been reading up on blu-kote on here. My hen won't be laying until a good 3/4 months from now. I 've read that you shouldn't consume eggs at all if you treat a chicken with blu-kote. What's the real deal? Will the eggs be safe in 3 or 4 months?
Not true-you can still eat the eggs when treated with Blu-Kote-we've been using it on ours lately for some roo wounds...and I asked a week ago or so and was told it is fine to consume the eggs. The stuff works great!

No one gave an explanation, but I took their word for it!!
