    My mother's chicken was attacked and she wants to use something on the scratches and irritated areas. Suggestions?

    Scratches and cuts...neosporine WITHOUT the pain relief additive.

    For many skin irritations Nu-Stock ointment (Tractor Supply, Amazon, etc.,)

    How bad is the chicken hurt?

    Just some pulled out feathers on her back and a little redness to the skin. Minor. Worked in the vet world for 17 years, but it's a rarity to see a chicken. I figured someone else has probably been through this successfully. Thanks for the info. I will pass it on.
