I've seen lots of threads on the immediate treading but because I went ahead and made a decision before reading up I think it's easier to just confirm that what I've done is enough, and get advice for what to do now. I have one hen-hatched chick that is around a week old that three days ago I let into the run with all the other chickens and her momma hen. Momma is the only bantam in my flock though and I guess she wasn't able to keep her safe. Yesterday she got bloodied up a bit. She is missing about a dime sized spot of skin on her rump right above her tail and another small spot on her shoulder at the wing joint. As soon as we noticed, we put her and her mom back into the secure brood area of the coop with their own food and water. I didn't have anything to clean her up with so I just smeared on neosporin and covered the big spot with some corn starch. Now I'm wondering how often I need to reapply the ointment and how long I should keep her and mom separate. I have a brood box indoors set up with 6 incubator chicks that hatched a tad too late to give to momma hen so I could remove her from the outdoor brooder and her mom and add her to the safer indoor brooder, but her and mom are so bonded that I worry about the stress of separation. Advice would be appreciated.
