I came in last night from being out of town and the first thing I did when I got home was go out to see my sweeties. My flock of 10 girls are 5 months old and have just started to lay. Nine of my 10 girls were fine but my little red had an injury. I took these pictures this morning and I am hoping someone can tell me what, if anything I should do. The pictures show her left ear that is injured and her right ear which is fine for comparison.I am a newbie so I don't know if I should isolate her, try to clean the wound up (it's already dried which I believe was the blood), or just let nature take its course. She is alert and acting just fine. I don't know if there was a tiff over a nesting box - the girls that are laying seem to prefer two boxes although I have 7 that are available. I do know my reds were the first to start laying. I don't know which others have started to lay. Could it be a tiff over pecking order? I have monitored all of them since I discovered this injury because I don't want this matter to escalate and thankfully, it doesn't appear it has. Please provide feedback as to what you think may have happened and what course of action I should be taking. Your input is greatly appreciated!!!!
