    6 month old white chinese geese. Both have blood and cracks around the bump on their head. Is this normal?

    Not sure what you men by the "bump" on their head. Do you mean the knob?

    And it isn't normal to have a bloody head. Ever.

    Could you post pics? We could help more if we could see the problem.

    hope you do not have kitty or other rodent issues that are growing up. Love my chinese whites, but with the agressive stance with head to the ground, most animals will hit it first.
