Hello,
Recently I have had a chicken with a bloody comb and I’m not too sure what has caused it. Is it just fighting or is it something to be concerned about. Should I do anything to protect her from anything that can harm her head? Please just message and help because I’m not too sure thanks
 
Accidents and mishaps happen with chickens. Often it's their feet or combs that get injured, because they stick out and are not protected by feathers. Apply some blu-kote to her comb to mask the blood and the wound (chickens love pecking at wounds and bloody things, it's instinctive). If her wound is serious, post a pic of it in the Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures for advice.
 
:goodpost: I would just add if it is still bleeding you can dab on some cornflour which should stop the bleeding. It could be any number of things but do keep an eye on on the chickens in case the injured one is being bullied.
