My 15 hens are a very nice flock as long as there is no raw meat around. My roo got an injured toe in April, and they nearly ate it off until I wrapped it with mesh bandage for two months. Four weeks ago he barely survived a dog attack losing all his tail feathers and sustaining some bites to the bone on his back. Those are all healed up now, but his entire butt is bare and pink. I would like to let him out of sick bay tomorrow, but I fear these cannibalistic hens. I can't bandage his whole rear end. My intention is to be proactive and cover him with something before I let him out and then watch carefully, but I can't be there every minute. I have some purple stuff called "Peck No More," but it looks like it will rub right off. Some people have suggested axle grease and black pepper. My father would probably have put tar on him. What do you guys suggest? He's a great guy, and I don't want to perpetuate the cannibalism or make him suffer more. He's survived so much already and has been a defense for his girls. Thanks for your time.
