    Welcome to BYC. Separate the younger rooster, since he will be pecked by everyone with his injuries. Has the baby been raised with the flock, and how old is he? What condition is he in--is he alert, bleeding, describe injuries, and anything you can think of. Stop bleeding with gentle pressure and a gauze pad. Weak betadine, Hibiclens, saline, or just soap and water will clean off the wound. Apply an antibiotic ointment without a painkiller.
