    Hello Brenda, [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]

    I just spray Bactine on the small cuts and in most cases that is all it takes but if you put up a photo of the the injury I could better give you an idea what will work ...

    Nice to meet you Brenda. Welcome to Backyard chickens. That's one of the many reasons a lot of chickeners forgo having roosters. Unless you need fertile eggs for hatching or sale, the hens are much happier without them.

    Hi and [​IMG] Brenda. Ditto on DD's advice above.

    More generally, the Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread will also put you in contact with other BYC members in your area.


    The members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
