    We just got a half dozen 12-week old hens from a factory farm (we didn't realize this was the case until they showed up in our driveway). They have clipped peaks and seem to have PTSD. Many of them have a strange white/greenish film on their ears, and we can't match it up to any of the typical ear infection symptoms.

    Here is a picture of one with only a mild film. The one with it the worse won't let me hold a camera up to her face. Hers is like this but thicker (more solid white color) and more green-tinted. Any thoughts/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Perfect! Looks like you nailed it, Eggcessive. Thank you so much for the warm welcome and super helpful reply. Do we simply apply the cream once a day until symptoms clear up?
