So today when I was letting my hens into the run I noticed blood on one of the walls of my coop. Sure enough, I found one of my hens comb bleeding. I rinsed it with warm water, put corn starch on it to help stop, and isolated her in a dog crate for a few hours. While doing that I noticed it looked like she had a bald spot right behind her comb. I got anti pick lotion and a wound wash spray that I’ve put on it. I let her go back out with the rest of the flock. One of my larger hens seems to be picking on anyone going into the nesting box she likes to use, and I think that’s what started it. What else should I do? The anti pick lotion seems to disguise the bald spot for now.
