    I have a Buff Orpington hen that some how her comb was torn from the back part of her head. We have cleaned her up, and put some Rooster Booster on it for healing and hopefully to keep the others from pecking at her. Will the comb reattach itself as it heals? Should I take her to the vet for a looky-loo? What would you chicken experts suggest? TIA for you help!

    Quote:I have heard of Rooster booster but if it doesn't cover over the wound some how they will probably mess with it. My advise is Blue-kote it makes the wound purple and is get for healing and disguising. Chickens are amazing healers and yours will probably heal just fine baring the rest leave her alone. All the best. [​IMG]
