    one of my chick's has what looks like a cut??? on the side of her face under her ear. I only noticed it because the area is pink and the fluff is missing

    There is NOTHING in the pen to get cut on so maybe another chick pecked her?

    I can treat every dog ailment you would want to at home and some you would not but chicks I don't remember a lot about. It has been 30 years. I applied some plain bacitracin ointment which she finds annoying

    That should be good yes? Would Blu Kote be better? I can get some this weekend

    It is just really weird
