    Looks like a pecking scab.If it spreads throughout the comb it would probably be Fowl pox.

    Okay, I hope it's from pecking [​IMG] he has paying too much attention to a certain hen and I've caught her pecking his face before. She's so annoyed with him :p if it is fowl pox how would I go about treating it? Thank you!!
