    I discovered today, one of my golden comets had her ear picked last night. She was hanging around me today, more then normally, as she is usually shyer.

    The feathers are all picked off & it was bleeding, but today it is dry.
    Do I need to put anything on this or is it OK as long as she isn't picked on tonight. Poor little dear. I feel so bad.

    How's your girl this morning? I hope she did OK. If she has been picked on some more, try some blue lotion if she is dark, or some corn starch dabbed on it if she is light. Those will help keep the others from picking. You may need to isolate her til it heals up some.
