    This little girl is being abused either by my buff orps (I moved them out of the main coop to the chicken tractor yesterday after watching them chase this one and her sisters away from the food) or by my Roo, Waylon. This injury is on her wing. I have read that iodine not only disinfects but keeps them from pecking more. Any other suggestions??

    It could be either, but I am leaning more towards roo damage because of the location. Iodine does disinfect, but I haven't used it to disguise damage. I normally use Blukote, but I don't see why iodine wouldn't work.

    Good luck.
