bloody spot on earlobe

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a 2 week old chick that has a bloody spot on her earlobe. it has bled down her cheek. One of the other chicks must have pecked her. Should I put something (medication) on it??

You can clean it gently with plain soap/water. Afterwards putting something like Blu-kote on the spot will prevent the other chicks from continuing to peck at it.

Hey, thanks so much. I'm new at this chicken thing so don't know what to expect. They have changed so much in two weeks I can't believe it.

You're welcome. I was pretty surprised at how fast they grew/matured too!
