and Patrick : Saying of the day. "Hey Ma.....SEE
it SAYS 30 on the invoice, do ya think they sent 5 roosters
for warmth or as freebies?"
: Question for you - my very naughty dog caught one of my almost
year old barred rock hens this weekend. She has a wound above
her left shoulder. She is doing fine otherwise, I treated her
with some homeopathics for Trauma/Stress and she bounced right
back. She is eating, grazing with the others and still laying
and egg a day. As far as the wound her feathers are covering it
so none of the others know it is there, so they are not pecking
at her. I remember as a kid my mom had a deep blue/purple spray
she would put on the chickens when they got injured. This is was
maybe an antibiotic of some kind. Mom can't remember what it was
or where she got it. Any ideas or suggestions would be GREAT.
Yes, the dog is grounded and is no longer allowed outside her
fenced in back yard. Thanks, I appreciate any assistance you may
be able to provide.
Reply : I'm not sure if it would be the same product your
mum used but there is an antiseptic/anti peck spray called blue
kote which is blue and for healing wounds and preventing pecking
(the blue colour disguises any red/blood which would normally
attract pecking). It (and similar products) can often be found
stocked in feed stores etc. but you may also be able to purchase
