    It happens. It could have been any # of things. From Heart to Tumor and anywhere in between. I wouldn't cull if there weren't any warning signs. I don't know of any disease that just kills a chicken overnight without some kind of warning signal. Of course I'm no expert either.[​IMG]

    Do you have him in with a LF rooster? That is what happened with mine a while back. I have to keep them away from all of my other roos now. The stupid Silkie roos don't realize how small they are and they want to throw down with the big boys. I'd clean that out and put an antibiotic ointment on it. Anyone have a specific recommendation?

    The more I look at that pic, is the comb actually torn down off of his forehead? [​IMG] Poor guy! I think you should go ask on the emergency/medical help thread (whatever it's called). I would think it would have to be put back in place somehow, but I really don't have a clue how you'd do it.

    I don't think his comb is torn off. I think he probably got pecked at a lot to the point if bleeding and his hair isn't as fluffy on his head and looks worse than it is. I'm gonna try to grab him tonight or tomorrow morning. I hope I don't come back just as bloody!!!!!

    At moments like this, you usually here someone say "You should see the other guy." However, from the looks of it, I don't think he saw the other guy. This is why running is sometimes a great strategy!

    Definitely look him over and get some care, you don't want an infection to set in to those wounds.

    LMAO! Sally teases me because I can't make up my mind. She has a different approach, she refuses to decide!
