One of my hens a New hampshire tore a part of her comb off. ( She has a very larg comb that flops over) I'm not sure how she did it this time. The first time she tore a small part of it on the fence when she was dust bathing, it bleed a lot all over her head. I seperated her in the coop til it stopped bleeding and cleaned off the blood, and she seemed fine and the other hens didn't bother her ( I have 4 others, 3 RIR and 1 new hampshire) so I kept them together. A few days later I went out to let them out and found her with a tear across the bottom of her comb with the front part of it still attached, she had a lot of blood all over her head, I let the rest of them out and kept her in the coop and cleaned her up. I have kept her in a dog kennel in the garage for the last few days separated from the other since they started pecking at her head. The comb has stopped bleeding and there is a part in the front still attached but turning black (it's about a 1/16 of an inch still attached and it was about an 1/8 of an inch that was torn almost off the bottom of the comb) I figured it will fall off since it's not getting any blood flow to it. A few questions, should I keep her seperated til it falls off or reitroduce her to the flock? And how do I reintroduce her to the flock? Their run is completly fenced in connected to the coop ( I live in northern Idaho and there is too many preditors to let them roam free), I under stand about putting the dog kennel inside the coop and keeping her safe so they can see her again and get use to her but what about at night ( not enough room in the coop for the kennel and it is very cold at night to leave her outside in the fenced in run). And is there something I can put on the tear? It looks good and clean.
