    Idk, maybe that part of comb is dead and will eventually fall off. I could not look at your pic. Getting error message The URl you have submitted has disallowed characters Idk what that means.

    Much better. It just looks like a nasty peck with dried blood and what amounts to a bruise. It should heal over time, worst, case she loses that little piece. Gently apply triple antibiotic to it for a few days and barring any more pecking, she should be fine. [​IMG]
