I saw these injuries on two of my girls. One was late last night, the other this afternoon.
My question is what can I do to help them? Both in the same condition for the most part, unsure about the Sexlink’s, it’s still bloody. 7E82288C-E13E-437E-99DF-DA77125B9D17.jpeg

I'm not seeing any injury on all but the "red" one. Looks like it tried pecking through a some wire, maybe hardware cloth? You can "clean" the with a dab of peroxide, making sure not to get any liquid in it's nostril. Then put some neosporin without the pain relief on or if you have Vetricyn. Watch that they don't peck each others injury (chickens love pecking red), if they do you could get some Blu Kote and dab it on making sure not to get any in the nostrils ... It's just to discolor the red.

Thank you. Don’t worry, I’m not that new, that’s why I separated them. But I’ve never seen that happen before. Especially with two of them at the same place. Just seems odd to me.
