    My one year old male pekin has a scabby bill. When it first started it looked like some of the top layers of the bill were peeling off. It bleeds on occasion now.

    Our drakes bill peeled one time. I do not remember it bleeding though, but I do remember it looked bad enough to panic my daughter. I cleaned it and put Vaseline during the day to protect from the elements and grime. It worked and started to heal right away. Hopefully you figured out what was going on.
