Our rooster lost most of his tail feathers and many of the feathers on his back in a dog attack. Since that time 4 months ago the hens have been pecking at the bare spots and causing him to bleed. I got some hot pick spray and sprayed him tonight. In the interests of science I put some on my hand and licked my finger. HOLY CRAP that stuff burns! The area where he is missing feathers is right at his oil gland. Is this going to hurt him? Will he stop preening? Unfortunately I already applied several squirts to his backside. Would you apply this again? I got the stuff from Eggcartons.com.
