    I had given my rooster a shot yesterday of Tylan 50 with a 20 gauge needle which was a little big (I did it tonight with a smaller 22 gauge needle) and now it is looking like it scabbed over. It isn't black but more of a dark red so I'm hoping it is necrosis. Is scabbing normal especially with a bigger than normal needle for a 2 pound bantam rooster?
