    Have a hen with sore behind beak and is drooling. Tries to eat but can't. Seems irritable with younger hens but I would be too if I couldn't eat. I separated her from flock, washed and disinfected waterier, and cleaned sore with peroxide. Any help would be appreciated.

    She's very vocal and doesn't seem lethargic. She has lost weight

    Ouchie..
    Is she eating fine?

    It's hard to see...I don't know how to zoom in on your pic.
    Is this an open type sore?

    She will peck and scratch but flings the food. Even the small granule type. Will also wipe her head on ground so as to get rid of drool or scratch head or something

    Are you able to purchase something like this or do you have something similar you can put on it?

    Can you scramble up some eggs and mix it with some wet feed...Soak some feed in water for a few minutes..see if she can eat that?
