So, I am locking my girls up last night and discover THIS!!! Yep, that is blood. Spattered everywhere. I am freaking out, double and triple head counting. Everyone is there, everyone lets me pet her, no one is acting weird. I noticed yesterday one of my buffs (Meg) looked 'dirty' when she was out rooting in the yard. They free range and have been digging like mad women at every patch of dirt not snow covered, so I wasn't overly concerned. Meg is letting me pet her, and I can't see any open wound, but there is some dry blood on her head. My question - is it normal for them to bleed a lot if they get a small wound?? (Particularly at the comb?) Is it ok to let her heal naturally? I don't really want to wash the area as it is below freezing, and going to get colder. Even bringing her in the garage to do it wouldn't help - it is only 28 in there!! I can't even really clean the coop - my rag was freezing on me!! I feel badly because this must have happened late morning or early afternoon yesterday. The other girls seem to be leaving her alone - ie no one is pecking at her head. I suspect one of the guineas got a hold of her, they will grab and not let go for a bit, but no unusual bullying today.
