    Our rooster has obviously battled with something....Early this morning our guineas where raising the roof....alarming us there must be a predator somewhere...Mojo looks to be injured. His whole top beak....what I can see for now is gone and he has some comb scratches. I put him in a cage by himself for now. I just started raising chickens this year. I do not know what to do next....Mojo is a family pet...our entire family enjoys playing with him. Does anyone know what I need or should do next?????????

    Not easy...
