    1 of my RIR (almost 2 wks old) chicks is missing some of her new tail feayhers and she has a bloody spot. I took her out and have her in my hand and she is sleeping. I dont want to put her back in there and the others pick at her. I have 27 total chicks. Please help. Is there something I can put on her?[​IMG]

    I've been using Blue lotion and Hot Pik a hot spice spray on my butt picked girls. If one had a really bloody butt I seperated the injured one for a couple of days to heal a bit.

    Go to your feed store for a "stop pick" product. It's an antiseptic with a color on it so she and the other chicks won't pick at it. [​IMG]
