Hello all,
My poor BO has about a 1/4 inch tear in her comb on the back side.
I sprayed it with Blue Kote.

Any other recommendations??
She is my Alpha hen so no one is picking on her so far.

Please advise

OW! Blu Kote stings! It also stains for a very long time! That's ok I'm sure she's over it now. Put triple antibiotic w/o pain killer on the wound until it scabs over. Do you have a roo? If so, he did it. If not, another hen is vying for dominance or at least had a serious diagreement. BO's frequently get picked on, I can't imagine how else she got that wound unless you have some ragged fencing or other sharp objects laying around. Either way, she'll be alright.

tHANK YOU...I will put some Neosporin on her today!!
I was guessing the wire fence as well.

Thanks for your help and for the peace of mind.
