    I have 3 male ducks that have been abusing my chickens. My buff brahma has massive injuries on the back of her head from them holding her down and pecking the back of her head. I have quarantined the ducks, cleaned her injuries the best I could and applied Neosporin. Her wounds are oozing and I am worried about her, any advice.

    When did this happen and what do you mean by oozing? What color is it?
