Hey all, checking on my girls today and noticed my shyest girls comb was completely gone in addition to her waddle. Her beak also looked like it was pecked and bleeding. From the research I’ve done it seems like maybe she was sick or something and picked on by the other birds. Is she going to be okay? This is really upsetting. Thanks all!

She may have been picked on or she may have gotten her head stuck in some wire, in a feeder, etc. Her beak looks a bit damaged as well (yes?).

I'm not seeing anything wrong with her wattles?

I would watch that she's eating/drinking o.k. Her comb should heal in a few days. The beak may take a little longer, I would just keep watch on that.

Thanks so much for the reply. Yes her beak was damaged too. I was told putting some blu-kote on it should help prevent infection AND more pecking. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on her. Thanks again!
