    [​IMG]Hello everyone, I posted this on another thread and was referred to this one so I hope you can help. I have 2 roosters which are always fighting so I keep them apart but yesterday one got out of its coop and I found its comb bitten off completely. I applied some jelly as advised in the thread Ive mentioned above and the rooster seems to be fine but I was wondering if thats enough. Ill post a picture in a few.
    Thanks.

    I would imagine that a through, though gentle, cleaning with iodine or saline solution, followed by some antiseptic ointment would be ok, so long as you keep an eye on things, to make sure that no infection appears.

    Poa sana [​IMG]. Personally, I would - at least you can be relatively sure that you've cleaned it well to tried to prevent infection.
