    If it looks like an abrasion or superficial scraped area: Wash with antimicrobial soap, pat dry and apply a dressing salve like neosporin.
    Remember...Chickens are allergic to the "caines" (lidocaine, benzocaine,etc.)
    Make sure its not a leg mite problem.( Its hard to tell from Picture.)
    Good looking fella! [​IMG]
