    She was bleeding but moving her wing fine. She was rough housing with her chick sisters. Does anything special need to be done.

    How old are they? If they can see the wound, especially with the bleeding they will probably keep picking at it. I would clean it and carefully spray Blue Kote on it, it can help prevent them from pecking her more while it heals.

    Just turned 5 weeks. I checked it today and seems fine. Scabbed over and has been left alone. Thanks for the help I will pick up se blue cote in case it happens again.
