    Hey, my Roo has some black crusty spots on his comb. I took a close look at it and some of it is flaking off with healthy looking skin under it, so it's probably an injury. What kind of antiseptic can I use on Chickens?

    Boy, his hens were upset with us for catching him and looking him over!! [​IMG]

    You really don't need to do anything to it. It will heal just fine on it's own. If you feel you absolutely need to though, try some blue kote.
