I posted 6 months ago my chicken was attacked by another chicken and her but lost alot of feathers she developed vent gleet and needed antibiotics. Update she still has poo on her new growth feathers. And the feathers around her butt have never quite come back. She still bleeds around where it looks like she's trying to preen in the new feathers but I spray her with vetericyn spray all the time and it just doesn't seem to help so I've given up. She still bleeds around her feathers near her vent but I don't know what to do

You'll have to keep her feathers trimmed back. I had a hen who was like this and every night I sprayed athlete foot fungal spray on her vent. She seemed to enjoy this treatment and always sat quietly while I treated her. This controlled the problem. When the hen stopped laying she healed completely. You can also feed her Bene-bac
to help restore normal bacteria to her gut. Also a fecal sample to the vet will help determine if she has parasites.
