    I would seperate him from the other birds, then put something on his comb, like Blu-kote, to stop the bleeding. My hens did that when their pen was too small for all the birds - how big of an area do you have all the birds in - could it be too small for all of them?

    The coop could be a bit small.we allow 4 sq. feet per bird....most of our chickens are good sized.
