(had 3 hens total with it) 2 hens ok. third looked to be healing up. 2 wks. later i have the one hens foot swelling, red looking between the toes. The little scab has healed and looks to be almost gone though. For the sake of hmmmmmm... i resoaked, picked the scab, put on boric acid and vaseline mixture, taped up, changed it daily. That was a week ago. hole looks to be healing up again, no heat but
