In the Brooder
- May 20, 2015
Ok... First off no flaming please but I bought some birds from a local breeder and when she brought them to me they were not in the best of health... I went ahead and took them partly because yes I felt sorry for them, the other part because I knew I could get them back to health... My question is... One has a large amount of her back feathers missing I am guessing from roosters... The other two are missing all but one single feather from their head... Literally... I could not send those birds back... It made me mad they were in that condition... So I brought them home, quarantined them, sprayed for lice, put them in a run with wood chips, good quality feed and a little red cell in their water... I am just trying to get them over the stress stage... One is obviously molting but I was wondering what can I put on the two birds skin to help them heal better... The other birds are not picking on them and they do not have any open areas... They just look like they fought a varmint and the varmint almost won... Any suggestions would be appreciated... Thank you!
