    We had a hen just have her first chicks today. Everything was fine except another hen came in we think ,and pecked at one of the babies eyes
    It looks like she missed the eyes but there are little peck wounds around its face, Can I put neosporin or vasoline on the wounds to keep it from getting infected. thank you to all that respond.
