Hi all, I noticed this morning that my Polish (7 weeks) had blood on the top of her beak. I cleaned her up with saline and qtips but should I do anything else? She’s still a bit raw (slow bleed) but her cell mate isn’t bothering it. Pics are before and after cleaning her up. She just started roosting so maybe she fell or something? :(

That's not bad at all. It's a common injury I see all the time. It usually heals up with no help. It's normally caused by rubbing, or bumping the chicken wire with the soft spot above the beak.
