    I have a 2 yr old hen that is bleeding. 3 or 4 of the points on her comb look to be rubbed raw and one is has a fairly steady drip to it and also she has a poke on her breast that is bleeding. It doesn't seem to be actively bleeding. Today was their first day in a new coop. She is currently in a seperate pen. I have 10 other hens that look to be ok. Since they are in a new building my guess would be there is something sharp somewhere but on spot looks to a puncture and the other looks to be rubbed raw so not sure. Wanted to see if anyone had anything like this happen ?
