Hi all you chicken lovers. Last week, late afternoon, a couple of my layers were attacked and mauled by a dog. One was AWOL overnight so I didn't know if she had even survived (but yes, she was back waiting outside the pen next morning- no obvious damage) When I checked the remainder of the flock, however, I was appalled by the wounds on one of my girls - a large area of feathers missing on her rump, teeth marks and flesh hanging off her leg. I was convinced she would die of infection within a few days. Thinking I had nothing to lose, I sprayed the wounded area well with Bosisto's Tea Tree Spray (a genuine Aussie natural product) that morning and evening and the following morning. To my amazement, my beautiful girl is on the mend. Her comb has regained it's red colour and apart from the fact that she has a large area of bare yellow coloured skin (from the tea tree spray), you would never know she had been through such an ordeal. I knew this product was "magic" for humans - so why not chookies????
