Will chickens pick at AluShield?

One of my hens has a laceration on her foot. I sprayed on some Blu-Kote for an antiobiotic and then some AluShield. I didn't realize the Alu was silver. I figured the other hens would peck at her so I sprayed some more Blu-Kote on her foot to cover the Alu. I'm wondering if the hens will pick at the silver if it's not coated over with the Blu Kote. I sprayed her foot at bedtime.

Thanks for any help.

I think they will leave it alone since it is not red. It's bloody things that seem to attract them. I would give it a try and just keep an eye on it. I think it will be fine though. Good luck!
