It wouldnt help with infection but it would stop the others from packing at it and inflaming the area. Any time a chicken sees a red spot they'll continue to peck at it, so you'll need to protect the area for it to heal. As for preventing/treating infection theres many topical sprays or creams for it. Some swear by blukote or triple antibiotic ointment (without any -caine products in it). Cant think of the other spray at the moment I've heard a lot about. I've treated a bumble foot infection on my duck with iodine as well.Will that help with infection!??
Is this the spot?I have chickens given to me and one had a spot the others pecked at and it’s getting worse
The large bulge in the chest on one side is the crop. Their food boob lol.
