My leghorn has some blood around it’s comb! It also has some black spots on it, I was assuming this is dried blood. What can I do to keep it healthy??? I did spray it with a something recommended, forgot the name.

OK. The name of what you sprayed it with should help. If you've cleaned away it and giving it a little spray, its just a nick and will heal quickly.

Ok good.

Keep an eye on it, make sure there's no bullying, but sounds just like a little nick. It happens to leghorns, because they are lively and with large combs.

No worries.

Combs and wattles bleed a lot. They are very vascular. It is common to see little black scabs on combs resulting from minor pecks, usually received at roosting time and when eating. I don't bother to treat unless someone got a little bite taken out that really starts bleeding.
Vertericyn Plus is good to have on hand for just such an occasion.
