Need advice, thanks!
Is the blood from the chicken? Is there a wound, and if so, what kind (superficial, like from flea bites, or deep flesh wound)? What body part is the blood on (feathers, comb, etc)? How much blood is it?
THe cuts are on her head where my other pullet was pecking on her. We've separated them and I am just trying to get her well as soon as possible so the other chicken can be moved out of her jail in the garage (she is not happy), back to the coop.
Just wipe her head with wet cloth. Rinse and repeat until its all off. If its on the body, you can give a bath. Keep her warm until dry if chilly outside. The question is , is it just going to happen again? Watch closely when you put them back together.
And you can camouflage it with Blu-Kote. You may need a Q-tip to gently apply it and only if your can avoid the eyes, ears and nares...
If the wounds are open, don't put her back with the others until they've healed over. The blood will increase pecking.
