    Hi all. I am new to raising chickens and got 2 buff orps, 3 RIR, 4 Australorps, and 3 silver laced wyandettes. I recently put them in their coop (4 days ago) went out to check on them today and one of the Australorps was bleeding. I separated her from the rest, cleaned the area and the bleeding stopped so I put a little neosporin on it. She seems fine, but im not sure if she is eating yet. I hope she'll be ok.

    Well it looks like the break is on the left side of the chickens head. I'm not sure how bad it is, since I'm new to chickens. The bleeding has stopped and she is eating.
