Hi One of chickens came to us with a scab under her wing where she'd been picked on by older birds in her previous home. She is fine and has established herself as top chick here, (the other 3 are younger). However, we noticed this evening that she has knocked the scab off and it looks red and a bit sore. She doesn't seem bothered, in fact laid our first egg today! I've seen a wound product advertised, is there anything you would recommend? I don't think she is in danger of being pecked by the others as they seem in awe of her
Agree, either purple spray or Animal Wound Powder (which comes in a small white bottle with a 'puffer' top). Either should be available from farm supply shops (ie. Scats), animal feed merchants, saddlers or pet shops. And the majority of online chicken shops have both.
The purple spray is also good to cover up bloody wounds as any bleeding will usually attract unwanted pecking attention - not a problem with your younger hens at the moment but it may happen in future.
