    Is it bleeding or just swollen?

    If it is bleeding, put her in a Low-Water Warm bath and Wipe off the blood with Soapy water and then put Hydrogen Peroxide on it.

    Looks like a superficial wound. Looks to be healing nicely.

    Well, I didn't know if I should be concerned about it. Blanche is 17 weeks eating and drinking well. Her comb/wattle development is lacking in color color compared to her sister's. We had a cockerel who picked on her and her plumage looked worse than it does now. The cockerels have been out of the picture for about 4 weeks now, but it seems like Red, a RIR pullet, is continuing with the pecking. [​IMG]

    Here sister Ethel has nice color and is more developed. She has two spots on her wattles, one on each side. I'm just worried that it is pox.[​IMG]

    I was thinking it was pox when I first saw it and the others were pecking at it.
