    Is one of your hens pecking at his feathers?

    You can use Blu-Kote to help with healing and stop infection.

    What breed is he and what age? Chances are the red isn't raw at all. Exposure of chicken slin to sunlight, or even air, will turn the bare skin red. Some breeds have bare areas and thus red. More info please, before you start gooping you and him both up with Blucoat.......Pop
