Chicken Boo-Boos Be Gone!
As you know, keeping a first aid kit on hand for your coop is essential to raising backyard chickens. While boo-boos don’t happen all that often in our coop, they do happen. It’s important to me to be prepared when one of these situations occurs. It could be anything from a cut or scrape from scratching around the ground, Bumblefoot or even a fight between two chickens. A new addition to my first-aid kit is a wound spray by Strong Animals called Bye-Bye Boo Boos™.

Strong Animals Chicken Essentials has recently come out with an incredible wound spray to help your chickens heal quickly and naturally. Bye-Bye, Boo-Boos is a safe and natural way to sooth and mend wounds, cuts, scrapes and abrasions for your flock. It contains organic lavender, tea tree essential oils (EO) and vitamin E to aid healing and protection from infection.
Lavender EO is known to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits. When our kids get a cut, scrape, or bug bite, I usually put lavender EO on first to treat it naturally. Tea Tree EO is known to have antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant benefits. Working together, these benefits will help reduce inflammation, infection and aid in healing. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant and helps protect cells from damage. All three main ingredients in Bye-Bye Boo Boos are stellar in natural healing.
Bye-Bye Boo Boos gently soothes the chicken's wound with no irritation, and one of the best parts? There is no egg withdrawal period! With many wound treatments out there, there is a period of a couple days where you shouldn’t eat the eggs. Bye-Bye Boo Boos is completely safe for you and your chickens! There is no need to interrupt the beautiful relationship of farm to table with this product.
Bye-Bye Boo Boos is available in 8 oz. spray bottle. It smells delicious and is available at your local farm supply store and on Amazon!
If you have a chicken with a boo boo, gently clean the affected area. Spray a liberal coating to the affected area. For best results use 2-3 times per day until the wound is healed. Give your chicken a nice little hug and cuddle and they will heal before you know it! This spray can be used with all types of poultry.
Try it out and let me know what you think!
Until next time,
