I put 2 of my very broody austrolorps in the same crate and somehow one of their comb got a cut and the other went to pecking her and looks like she tore half of it off. It was pretty messy. I am worried about the injured chicken. I have since separated the two and washed the comb with water but I Dnt know what else to do except wait a few days. Any suggestions? Will it heal on its own?

You could put some triple antibiotic ointment on the wound, just the plain kind, not the kind with pain reliever in it. Keeping it clean is the most important thing. Hope she heals up and feels better! :)
