Comb injury

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I discovered a comb injury on one of my chickens recently. Not sure whether to isolate the chicken and just let it heal or to cut the comb. It mainly looks like dried blood around the injury. Thanks for the help in advance. Here are some picture

Hello and welcome to BYC! 

 

I would definitely put something on this wound. It still looks iffy to me. I like to use Scarlet Oil on combs. It is very similar to Blu-kote, but it is red like the comb and will help to hide injuries. You can find this stuff in the horse section of bigger feed stores. Maybe put some antibiotic topical cream on it too. I wouldn't separate her out so that you don't have to worry about reintroducing, but I would keep a close eye on her. Who ever attacked her could do it again. Chickens love to go after wounds.

Thanks. I've been putting antiseptic on it but I will definitely look into scarlet oil. Just trying to make sure I'm doing all I can for proper and speedy recovery

I think you are doing about all you can. Keep an eye on her and it and she should make a complete recovery. :-)
