    [​IMG] I was looking my new pullets yesterday and my little sweetie houdon had a open cut under her wing which I noticed when she flapped and got blood on me. The blood was clotting and seemed fine, but today my wife (note: she stated before I got them that she hated chickens..she loves this little girl..she picked it) saw that it had a white-ish coating over it. I didn't know if this was normal or if they scabbed up with a normal scab. She is still as energetic as ever and when we walk in the coop she will fly right up onto my leg and then I put her on my shoulder to walk around where she sleeps. She is such a sweetheart..any thoughts guys?

    I would think if she is acting ok that she is ok. If she is with others though, you may want to seperate her as they are inclined to pick at blood.
