    One of my a&ms has some feathers missing around the neck, will blue kote fix her up?

    IT CERTAINLY WONT HURT, BUT IS LIKELY UNNECESSARY... MOST LIKELY STARTING TO MOLT (MINE ARE [​IMG]) AS MOLTING IS NORMAL AND THEY LOOK RATHER SCRUFFY AND BEDRAGGLED FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

    Clean it up and stick her back in there. Just keep a close eye on her and if it gets worse isolate her and then use blue kote. I wouldn't use it unless she's got a good sized place...
