One of my hens has been plucked in a small area on her back a couple of days ago, and the skin has turned a purple colour. I'm not sure if this is a sign or healing or if it's getting worse. We've been putting antiseptic cream on it to stop infection but I'm not sure if it's working. There isn't much else we can do as we don't have access to anything else to help it heal and when we separate her to keep her away from the other hens, she escapes and ends up back with them anyhow. I will be able to get a picture up tomorrow. Is there anything else I can do? When we put the cream on her, the other hens seem to leave her alone because it's strong smelling and they find the stickiness unpleasant but I'm afraid that the main culprit of the plucking might move onto other areas of her body or onto the other hens. Any advice would be well appreciated, thanks!
