    I agree, i had a hen that got attacked by a rooster and he ripped off her comb and the whole entire back of her neck i put honey on her and it healed then i put her back and he attacked her again he did it so bad that he killed her. But honey is great!

    Sorry about you hen. It’s good to hear that I’m doing the right thing by not using blu-kote. It’s a good product just not for this. Now if I can keep bugs off him and keep him alive we will be set.

    @wren you are going to be in the kitchen cooking meals for your boy daily, I see it, your human family smells you cooking scrambled eggs and oatmeal and comes in for breakfast as you set the plate down on the floor for your chicken!

    I think it needs to be cleaned out like casportpony said.
    And don't knock the honey, I've always wanted to give it a try, just always forget about it.

    I always recommend Lambert Kay EMT gel, you can get it at TSC. I've used it on dogs, on chickens.
    I've seen it work amazing wonders on bad wounds, like no skin just meat wounds. I disinfect with Povidone-iodine/Betadine and then apply the EMT gel.
    They use it on man and beast and birds, reptiles.

    "A completely natural collagen product that provides the building block matrix for new cell growth. Collagen is the building block for new cell growth. Collagen is a fibrous protein found in connective tissue, muscles, skin, bone, ligaments and cartilage. EMT Gel supplies nutritive protein directly to the wound site.

    Update? How is this guy doing? It's been a few days, which can make a huge difference.
