    I was wondering if this is something I need to be concerned about? My 17 year old daughter noticed this morning that one of our 7 week old Buffs had a spot of blood at one of its nostrils. Other than monitoring to see if it persists, anyone know if there could be an issue? It could just be a pecking wound from one of its sisters?

    It appears that your hen got into a little tussle with one of her sisters. One of our hens had gotten into a fight before, and one of the teeth of her comb had been pecked off. Your girl will be ok, she just had a disagreement :)
