How do i treat a 8 1/2 week old chicken wit ha red chaffed/chapped face? I am not sure what did it, it just started the day before yesterday.She was taking a dirt bath in the pine shavings instead of outside, so could it just be irritation if she rubbered her face in the pine? I am trying to get pics, she isnt very cooperative at the moment. And, to top it off my Muffinz is suddenly having wattles that are bright red and i dont know if it is from the irritation or if she is a late blooming boy (which will make me cry). Does anyone know what i should do?? Should i seperate her?? ok,ran out and brought her into the house for pics. she isnt happy with me.
