    My hen (Mavis) tore her comb this morning. I was able to clean it, but will my other hens attack her since she's bloody? Should I remove her? They generally get along but I'm not sure if that will hold if she smells bloody

  2. chickens will peck at bloody things making them worse, you should separate her
