    Quote:I have heard that blue kote (or whatever it is called works) I also had someone suggest vicks vapor rub (but I am not sure if that is a good idea or not) I didn't try either. So far I only had one LF EE picking at my Bantam Polish and I got rid of the pecker [​IMG] and haven't had a problem yet. I am interested in how they get along when they are not cooped up. How long have they all been together and what area to they have to range in? Alot of people swear that you can't have polish with other breeds. I am hoping if they have enough room it won't be a problem.
