    I heard a commotion, went to investigate and my two cochin bantam roosters were fighting. .. what to do to help with their wounds, blood etc. They are separated right now.

    Blood stop powder or flour and a little pressure for a minute or two will usually help blood to clot. From the pictures, I can't see specific injuries, other than combs and wattles which bleed like crazy. If you find open wounds elsewhere, clean with weak betadine and apply plain Neosporin ointment or vetericyn wound spray. Make sure the eyes aren't damaged. Sounds like they need to be permanently separated from now on.
