    One of the dogs managed to get hold of a chicken and pull out all of her tail feathers. The chicken is fine other than having no feathers and what looks like a very raw rump. Is there anything i can purchase at my local feed store tomorrow to help her heal? There was some bleeding but nothing that appeared real serious. Thanks guys for any help y'all can give.

    Blu-Kote spray is good. Will help with healing and chickens are not as likely to peck at it because it's blue.
