    What exactly is the difference between Red Kote and Blue Kote?

    I've never heard of red kote, but I wouldn't use it on a chicken if it's red colored. The color red is like putting a sign to "peck here" to a chicken.

    Not.that it is related but they seem to like pine tar too. Was told they didn't. Used it to stop picking on a bird and it seemed to draw them to that bird. Had to relocate bird till it got its feathers back.
