    My Buff Orpington is in really good condition, and I'm entering her in the fair. Unfortunately, when she was nesting last week, she cut herself a little bit on the front of her comb right where it connects to her beak. It's a minor cut, but you can still see the black scab there. I've been putting ointment on her, and that's been helping a lot to stop the bleeding. I was wondering if anyone had any idea if it might affect how the judges look at her that much? It's noticible, but it looks just like a black dot.

    P.s: I'd like to know if it would effect judging majorly or minor please.
