    checked the coop tonight and one chicken looked bloody and there were dinner drops of blood in her corner of the coop. I took her inside to inspect so I could see her better and it just looks like a little died blood on her nose and comb, without any other obvious injuries. It is hard to clean off because she won't keep her head still and my husband is not home to assist! Do chickens get bloody noses?

    My other question is, since she seems fine, is it ok to bring get back to the coop? She has been inside in the warmth for about twenty minutes. And it's probably about 25 degrees outside so I don't want to shock her. Thoughts? I could have her inside for the night then bring her out during the day tomorrow too.

    Ok thanks, sorry for typos I'm on my phone.

    So I guess I will just see if it happens again, to see if it is a symptom of a larger problem, or maybe she just cut herself on something.

    Any opinion on if she will be shocked from the cold if I bring her out now?

    She could of pecked another chicken and got the blood on her beak.
