Well, today is the third day of treatment with monistat, and I do believe they are getting better. Not the incredible turnaround I’d hoped for, but the two worst butts are definitely looking cleaner and drier today, and feathers are continuing to regrow (they grow fast!).  The two ameraucanas are fully integrated into the group (the banty Iowas still keep to themselves) and are out foraging and seem pleased as punch.  I’m going to treat them for 6 days and then stop. Fingers crossed we beat this thing!

This is not one of the sickies, but she was the only hen willing to pose for a photo. Now there's a happy chicken butt!
