    Greetings from Kansas and [​IMG]! Great to have you here! Sorry to hear about your picked on chick. You did the right thing by isolating it from the others - keep it close so it can at least hear the others - less stress that way. If it's just a little bleeding it should be okay on its own - but don't integrate it back until it is fully heeled. If it's like an open wound it may require more intensive care. If so, post in thread below for advice. Good luck to you!!
