Please post some photos of her injuries.My hen was practically scalped a week ago. She is healing very well, but I am anxious to get her back into the coop with her friends. What is the best way to bandage and protect the would area?
Personally, I would just dab on a little Pine Tar and call it good.
Thanks for the thoughts. I was going to use pine tar, but can’t find it sold locally anywhere. Do you know where I can get it?Personally, I would just dab on a little Pine Tar and call it good.
Wrapping the neck like that may cause some problems swallowing food, plus she may be targeted because she looks different.
If you roosters tore her up, they may just do that again. I've had a rooster that was dead set on killing one of my hens. That's not just mating injury, that's attack wounds.
I ended up culling that rooster, hated to, he was gorgeous, but hens don't deserve to be beat up.
