I have been lurking here for a few years now since I have first started with chickens. Right now, I could sure use advice from more experienced folks. My rooster has absolutely torn apart one of my hens back. It's raw and on her sides the skin seems loose. I can't help but be reminded of when I separate the skin from a whole chicken to add butter in between.. eww. Well, I cleansed her back with Betadine and generously applied neosporin to the entire area. I have put her in a cage to heal and for separation from the beast. Should I be doing anything else? What should I be looking for in terms of possible infection? Lastly, has anyone used the chicken saddle and do they work. Many thanks for any help!! My roo is mean and aggressive.. been thinking about making a stew out of him. He is still around because this is the first year he haven't lost any hens.
