My hen is doing so much better that was injured earlier this week. She has been in a dog crate in the coop all week and of course not happy. I have treated it daily and she still has a wound and bald spots. It no longer looks raw and she is eating, drinking and pooping fine. My question is have any of you put a bird back this soon, with some kind of "no-pick" dressing on their injured area? I will be gone most of the day tomorrow and hate to think if she spills her water (she does quite often) and I won't be able to check on her. BTW for those that were interested in how the Vetercyn worked, it is truly a wonder dressing. I could see improvements right away. It is safe enough to use anywhere, pricey but I think it is well worth it.
