    Is there something I can put on his comb to make the hens leave it alone/heal? For some reason, they bite the last two spikes of his comb and he just looks plain awful, plus I don't want him to constantly have an open wound and go through the pain. Thanks for any help! :)

    You can try applying Blu kote on it, but you may have to seperate him till he heals..... Hens can be mean
