    This 5.5 week old BO seems to have an injured wattle. I didn't see wattles at all yesterday. Today I notice them and one looks like rectangular scab. Nothing else alarming and I haven't witnessed anyone pecking although that is my guess as to what may have happened. Also, I have 7 BOs and this is the only one with comb and wattle development. Is it likely a male?

    I just saw someone peck at it, so that part of the mystery is solved.
