    you could let nature take it's course or to help it heal you could rub "Rooster booster" on its comb and separate it from others

    Is it sunburn or did he stick his head in a fire? If it's sunburn it'll be ok in a couple of days. Either way you can put some Neosporin on it to help prevent it from getting infected.

    im not sure he's flips a lid when i pick him up so i cant hold him for long we think it may be chemical burn from some mop water that contained cleaners

    Hope he didn't drink any of it. Chicken combs can withstand a lot of abuse & damage without causing any ill effects to the chicken. I'm sure he'll get well soon. If not, then write back.
