    I'm going to go clean her up. I don't have blu-kote, I'm not sure where to get it, and the roads are slick and awful from the snow.

    Is there anything else I can put on her?

    I'm going to separate her in the coop until it heals up a bit.

    Anything else I should do?

    You can put hydrogen peroxide and than iodine (mixed with water until color of tea) on it to clean it out. If you don't have any of these I heard that some people use rinses made out of salt and water and other people use honey.
    Ive also look for blu-kote at all my feed stores and not a single one carries it. To kill bacteria and help it heal faster you can put on neosporin which is available at all most all pharmacies.
