My older hens sometimes develop bare spots on their undercarriage, keel or farther back, where they sit or roost, as they become less active and things sag with age. Does anyone have suggestions for topical applications to soothe these spots and heal any abrasions that occur? Something that rubs in or at least does not leave a thick or sticky residue would be best, as obviously sticky stuff attracts dirt. I've used Vetericyn but not been overly impressed.
