    Hello everyone.

    Like everyone know I've a rooster 11 months old whose comb is giant + thick + floppy .
    Nowadays its summer here and we starting notice that our rooster pretty uncomfortable with comb when I bathing him I see his floppy side which cover his one eye totally getting irritated due to humid weather


    The skin is thin red & irritated some ulceration is happening there as the comb is kinda heavy nd thick . .
    As he's getting very irritated

    My & my Mon decided to dub it
    We tried earlier to dub it but as he's out beloved pet we just can't able to cut it .

    And in our city there's no veterinary surgeon available .

    We have all the medical support avail in our home .
    Like blood stop powder
    Betadine solution
    Rubbing alcohol
    Tea tree oil
    Turmeric ointment


    So a friend of friend whose working in a butcher shop we are calling as they are experience to hold the knife and in cutting we didn't want to waste 1 extra min in the dubbing process .


    I'm really want to dub it In winter but as he getting so much irritated and his skin is red we decided it


    Looking forward for advices
    Pls

    I assume he's the boy in your profile picture? Yeah. That looks irritating.

    No experience with dubbing, but I'd try using a cold cloth/icepack before and after to numb the comb and help stop the bleeding.

    You can also give a chicken a baby aspirin, or 1/4 of a 325 mg aspirin, ground up in a cup of water, once a day (or over the course of a day). That may help with the pain afterwards.

    Good luck.

    Also check YouTube. I think I saw a few dubbing instruction videos there. Folks on the game fowl threads here may be able to help too. Good luck!

    No dubbing advice, but I'd find something other than aspirin for pain. Aspirin is a blood thinner in humans. I assume that holds true for chickens as well. May cause even more bleeding.
