    Our White Face Black Spanish hen, Eleanor, cracked her spur. It bled quite a bit. I put tea tree oil on it to clean up any germs and tried to bandage it. Well, Eleanor ripped the gauze off, so I left it off. I kept her in the infirmary for a couple of days before returning her to the hen house.

    Her spur grew back, but it is growing upwards instead of straight out.

    Other than it looks a little funny, she is doing just fine. I'm sure your bird will be fine too.
