I found one of my hens this morning had apparently gotten beat up on while i was away yesterday and since it was well after dark before i got home i couldn't see the injury last night when i shut them in. It's on the back of her neck. Looks like someone plucked the feathers out of her and possibly picked her skin too (probably one of my older hens). I can't tell entirely what's going on with the scab that has formed. I can just see the bald patch and the scab-no fresh blood. I didn't want to pick the scab off since that's doing it's job keeping germs and filth out of the area. She's eating fine and acts just fine right now. I watched them for a while and nobody was picking at her. Just the usual bs of the older hens running the younger one's off but nothing overly aggressive. Wat should i do with the wound? I don't have anything on hand to treat wounds with right now-hubby threw out my Nolvasan last time he cleaned the kitchen and i haven't been able to replace it yet. I wasn't sure washing it was a good idea anyhow with it being cold today (mid 40's is all) and i don't want to encourage the scab to fall off and leave a red open area to encourage others to pick at. Thanks for the help. THis is my first wound so i'm not sure what to do and my books have been no help.
