    Maybe you chicken are on a break? My friend bought laying chickens and said a few months a year the start loosing feathers n dont lay.
    big story on these OLD girls of mine, but yes, very likely just on 'that' break. They seem to be going forever and I only bought the one OLD hen because they said she wasn't laying anymore and all I wanted was a companion for my one remaining OLD hen.. They both layed an egg a day and are in molt right now so who knows.

    If you do not see rapid improvement(or it worsens) after treatment begins see your Vet. It looks like a bacterial skin infection to me and prescribed antibiotics may be needed. GL handsome boy!

    As mentioned in a later comment make sure you lather the shampoo and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. That is what our vet recommended and what i have read helps prevent the skin from drying out.

    And also shave areas as mentioned earlier so they won't stay wet.

    Hello everyone!

    Bubba is now 2 weeks post op from his tie back surgery so I can finally bathe him (couldn't get water in the stitched area prior). I have started today the Shampoo below. How often should I do it? Every day or every other day until it is resolved? Wasn't sure which?

    For the ointment below this stuff STINKS. I am gagging at the thought of it all over my bed sheets! Are there any other alternatives to the nustock (maybe a spray) that has same effect (speed up hair growth and help control the wounds from skin infection?

    Thank you!!!

    Shampoo: Ketohex
    Ointment for hot spot: Durvet NuStock

    haha,,, I used that stench NuStock once and dread the thought of using again. It's horrid!!! I just used colloidal silver and aloe I think as I couldn't stand that other. Works fabulous but just could only use on a small spot.

    Is this the one you are talking about? Is has the same effectiveness as nustock?

    I think that looks great... I make mine but I would surly buy that. I was just reading on how the silver works well with yeast infections so I would give that a shot if your comfortable. I was doing a big 'science' thing on Hank as for which did better on clearing up those spots, but,,,,,,, I used the silver, aloe, (mixed) and the bathing with that shampoo... and I thought he cleared up quite fast compared to others but as I said, I switch up things so it wasn't completely conclusive.

    I am using the Ketohex shampoo every other day. I have ordered the Collodial Silver spray and will use that every day. As you can see in the picture certain parts of it are pretty nasty. I hope it clears up and the hair can ever grow back

    Vet shaved most of the area and prescribed simplicef antibiotic for 10 days.

    I have the colloidal silver spray arriving today. Will use that on entire area twice a day.

    Any recommendations based on the pictures?! Amazingly he doesn't seem uncomfortable. Not sure if I should continue doing the medicated bath every 48 hours?

    Thank you all!!!

    I sure hope the silver works for you.. And personally, i wouldn't wash that often unless strictly told to do so. I did 2x a week for the first week, then just once for a couple of weeks. I tried to keep dry between sprays.. Vetricyn is also good and yea, i probably alternated with that as well. Just keep a good eye on it to make sure your going in the right direction... all the best, it will heal and grow back just keep at it.
