    A chicken hawk got my sons favorite rooster. I think he's fine but quite a bit bloody. Blood it coming out where the feathers were being ripped out, I think he will be fine with that. What I'm concerned about is his comb is bleeding quite a bit. Not pouring blood but when you wipe it it comes back immediately. Can I put anything on it? I have him in a seperate cage to keep the others away. We think he will be fine, very scared, dirty and bloody but if he does not get some infection I'm sure he will be ok.

    Thanks!

    Flour or styptic gel should clot it up.
