One of our 4 month old Golden Comet Hens was injured the other day (4 days ago now). She had a whole chunk of skin (size of a golf ball) ripped from her right side. We assume it was and over-zealous mount attempt from one of our 5 mo. old roosters. However when we found it it was not "fresh". We immediately separated her from the flock to prevent further damage/injury. The flap created by this injury would not adhere to the rest of her skin and has not "died-off" as we suspected it would. So now, today (4 days into the healing process) the entire injury (including the hole) seems to be healing great. No Infection, and a "film" growing over the entire injury sight. However she has now started pecking at this flap of skin (just hanging now) and it is bleeding. I hate to cut off this "flap" of good tissue, but I fear it will never be anything but a "flap of skin". If we do attempt the cutting of this flap what is the best/quickest/safest/least painful way to do so??? In the photo of injury you can see (top to bottom of injury) partially covered by wing is the healing "meat" area, then a crusted over area, and then the flap which she has now began to "pick-at". All in all the injury looks great (as a hole in the side goes) without infection, no smell, and chick is eating, drinking, pooping, and jumping around as normal. Please advise on best course of action !!!! Note: the bleeding in these photos is fresh today from her pecking at "hanging" skin flap.
