I have a 9yo RIR hen that does not walk well. She had an unknown injury this summer and has recovered but walks slower now and at times lays down alot, since she has a wobbly walk now she has to take brakes often. From taking so many brakes she can ,at times, get crap stuck to her feathers, matted even, so I cut the poop out with scissors. Now she has exposed skin on her rear and it's getting very red and looks painful. What can I add topical to it, to help?? YES, I learned from this and will not cut feathers going forward I'll use a rag to get the poop off. Lesson learned, the hard way, per my usual, and at my hens butt's expense. Poor girl. I'll post a pic. Just need to know what topical will help redness and possibly soreness. No blisters or abrasions at all just red skin and ONLY red where I cut the feathers. Thanks!!
