    I have a white silkie rooster named Fozzie. He decided yesterday to start a fight with my black cochin rooster and ended up on the short end of the stick so to speak. His comb is terribly bloody. With it being so very cold I did not wash him up for fear that he would get chilled and it seems to have clotted but he looks real rough [​IMG]
    OUCH, he looks miserable but is moving about and eating as normal. Maybe he will think twice next time.

    I guess silkies really are evil! My silkie roo did the same thing with my white cochin frizzle roo. It was bloody, no real injury though. Both were better it a few days. I did make sure they can no longer get to each other. Hope yours heal okay.

    I would put neosporin on him. Poor little guy.

    Maybe you could bring him in and just wash of and exam his comb. When dry apply neosporin or bag balm and then put him back out. If his comb is bloody while he is with the flock they may continue to peck at him.

    With their disposition, I'm glad Silkies don't weigh 15 pounds. Mine were always picking a fight with the ducks.
