    My chicken was attacked by a small dog and he tore off her skin and feathers on her back just above her tail feathers. I am spraying antibiotic spray on it and I washed it. Will this heal ok and should i be doing anything else? Thanks

    Had similar wounds, a couple of inches in diameter. Cleaned it up and used Blue Kote spray. Healed very well. grew back feathers and all. could not even tell after a couple of months. The Blue Kote also keeps the others from pecking at it


    PS YES it STAINS everything blue. Rubbing alcohol helps remove the stains from your fingers.
