    i went out and saw that my young Polish rooster has a weird bare stop on his neck....
    What is it?
    What can I do to prevent it towards the others?
    And how do I cure it?
    (Also he isn’t even crowing yet and is a real late bloomer.... he has lots of problems and I have posted some forums before w/ is problems.... *like I’ve noticed that he does have a weird balance problem.... I don’t know what that is....)

    Do you know if he could've been pecked by others? You said he had a balance problem. He has trouble walking? Like weak legs or something? Put an ointment on that spot, maybe that will help. ;)Also, maybe vitamin B will help with the imbalance.

    The balance this doesn’t seem too bad I think he was born with something, I don’t know how to explain it but it’s like sometimes he will rock back and forth the slightest bit And his toes will go up in the front although I might of made it sound to dramatic, another problem I have no clue what this is but sometimes on his right side of his face he will need to scratch (same side of the bald spot...) (I hope I can explain it right....) and I don’t know if he couldn’t been pecked by others.... I checked for lice and mites and didn’t find anything...

    I would keep your eye on him to see if the spot was caused by pecking. And try giving vitamins. Packets can be bought that you can mix in a gallon of water. My Rhode chicks are currently on some.

    Should I use probiotics and electrolytes that you give to chicks ?? Also I have the “no peck” stuff should I put that on the wound or is there something else? What type of ointment

    These are what I use. Got them at Tractor Supply. As for the wound- wash it gently with warm water and a mild soap. Then you can either try a dab of hydrogen peroxide or use Neosporin.

    I can’t really say what that is on her skin. It might be feather picking or something else. Does it feel swollen or raised like a cyst?

    Thank you so much! One more question, I just want to get it right, so when I wash it with warm water, do I add the probiotics and electrolytes In that water that I scrub with?
