    It appears to be an injury of some sort, put some neosporin ointment or triple antibiotic ointment on it and it'll heal.

    Yep. Dawg is correct, of course [​IMG] . Don't happen to have a rather "bossy" hen do you? I have a couple sex-links that have beat up my the comb, as well as tailfeathers, on my poor winpy roo.

    I also use bagbalm on the combs. seems to have the added effect that nobody likes the taste of it.
