    Invisible bandage is nice too. We had some in our firstaid kit and put it on 2 hens who were attacked by dogs and had missing skin on their necks. Both are alive and well over a month later.

    Quote:You should be able to get Blu Kote at your local feed supply store. It can be used on a variety of animals, but it's most useful with chickens because it helps to disguise the wound as well as disinfects. I always keep some on hand.
