This morning I went outside to give the chickens table scraps when I noticed my white leghorn named lily was covered in red. I was completely shocked, her own blood drenched her from head to shoulder! It had happened very recently because I had seen her a few minutes ago and she was fine. We caught her and layed her down on a table. Her face was covered in blood so we used a towel to wipe it off. We then used it to wipe off the rest of the blood. We found that the blood was coming from the back of the comb where the comb joins to the head. We immediately knew what had happened. We had seen our rooster using her comb as a grip rather than her feathers when mounting her. We think he had mounted her and while gripping her very large comb with his beak, may have slipped and ripped the comb a bit. And because her comb has amount of blood in it, it began gushing extra blood. We had earlier found a scab on the comb that we suspected was for the same reason. She is okay now, despite the pain on her head she was still enjoying the table scraps. I found blood droplets on the side of the house where I think the incident happened. Is there a way to stop my rooster from grabbing her comb rather than the feathers? This is urgent as he may accidentally reopen the wound!
