My sister's and I all have hens that we keep in a backyard coop.One chicken has a sore on both of her wings and behind her comb. Her feathers are ruffled.But she's laying fine.
My sisters clean it out daily,and put Rooster Booster and vix for the bad taste.But somehow i think they like it

.What can i do we only have five hens?
Is it a vitamin problem? I don't know what to do

Is it only the one hen? How old are they, and what type of feed do you have them on? How large is their run?

That hen could be at the bottom of the pecking order, and she is probably being roughed up by the other hens......A good thing to do would be put some blue cote on her....Looks terrible, it's bright blue, but it will help heal the wound and deter pecking. If you sit and watch the hens for a while, you'll be able to tell what is happening....

If possible, it would be good if you could separate her from the bullies so that she can heal.....
