    One of my hens has a bad gash about 4 inches long and 3 inches wide at the most. We ordered a hen apron but want to clean out the wound before we put it on. We used blue kote but she is still open and have tried Neosporin and Hydrin peroxide to keep it from being infected. It looks bad and infected still Help plz

    How many roosters do you have, aprons are not "all that".
    Rinse it with warm water and pick up some Veterycin spray...spray it a few times a day.
    Can you possible bring her in doors until it heals so flies do not lay eggs inside it?
    Can you post a few pictures?
