    A friend of mine worked for Animal control, and in the course of her job, learned what cock fighters do for their birds after fights... when my hen was injured, she gave me the following advice: feed bread soaked in milk, and banana.

    I'd also use some vitamins, and electrolytes. Keep calm and separated. I think most antibiotic ointments are fine as long as there is not pain ingredients in there.

    Best wishes to your roo for a full recovery!

    I am so sorry. But my experience has been that when they reach breeding age they will start fighting. I had three at the end and once it started I started separating. They had gotten a long fine up to that point. Earlier there were 7 RIR roosters that had been removed from the flock and they fought among themselves until they went to freezer camp.

    It is upsetting!
