Ok So I went to pick up one of my favorite hens today and my hand was all bloody. When I pulled the feathers away I saw the picture that is posted. With assistance the spot was cleaned and neosporin was placed on it and it is wrapped now and will be cleaned twice a day until healed. My question is what the heck is it... where did it come from and how did I miss it... I hold her every day. When it was cleaned it oooozed and goooed and the feeling of it is very hard but it is all in the tissue nothing muscular. I think that is all the info I got but I need to know your thoughts. Plus I need to know is there anything I can give her beside medicated feed... we dont used medicated feed because of our ducks and I hate to have to buy a 50 pound bag for only one hen for a couple of weeks. Any suggestions. Thanks so much and any other rules of thumbs and wisdom is always welcomed. thanks for your time.
