    My sweet Pip, 14 week old Blue Andalusian cockerel, has scratches and cuts on his comb, wattles and ear and matted blood on the back of his neck. He seems fine, eating and drinking but is very humbled. I think Hiro, my 15 week old Black Japanese Bantam might be the culprit because of the way he follows Pip and won't stop crowing. Pip runs to a corner when Hiro comes around and is hanging with the younger girls! First off, how to I help Pip's wounds? Should I wash the neck and doctor everything or just leave it be? Secondly, do I need to get rid of Hiro? He's been friendly up until now, even lets us hold him. I have one other OEGB cockerel that seems clueless.

    It's hard to see but his ear has a gash and the tip of one of his comb points is bloody as well as a long scratch along the comb. You can kind of see the matted wet blood on the neck.

    Hiro is half maybe a third Pip's size.

    Pip is literally in time out! [​IMG]
