I know this sounds strange, but one of my roosters attacked my favorite rooster so for a few weeks our kitchen was a chicken hospital. I tried the Blu-Kote and it didn't do much, so I then turned to raw honey. I put it on his neck (he was missing feathers and skin and all) and then put some gauze and a sock over his neck. Within a week we moved him back outside because most of his skin was back. I only tried it because we have used it on our boarders who have been bitten by snakes that had to be boarded because the owner couldn't care for them correctly. It worked wonders and just reinforced that I need to keep raw honey in the house!!
