    My rooster and the other ganged up on my favorite barred rock bantam. She has a neck wound but no puncture to the actual muscle. Is there anything I can use in place of vetericyn(I think that is what it's called?) while she's in medical bay in the washroom? She can eat and drink fine but I don't want infection, and I am going to look at tractor supply but want to know if anything like blue-kote is okay. I want to help her without hurting her because I don't know much about how to help injuries like these. Any help is appreciated.

    I like Vetericyn, but plain neosporine (without pain relief) works well too.
