Hello folks:

My little joey - Lenox - has been OOP since 9.26. When I was handling him last night, I noticed a small wound on the back of his neck. I'm pretty positive he's not being rejected by the parents so I'm assuming this is from over-grooming from one of the parents. The father has a wound too that I have been treating from her biting him when they try to mate. I'm really hesitant to separate the mother from the baby since he's still nursing, but I'm afraid she may hurt him or worse even kill him.

Advise?

It is possible that the father put that wound on the joey. Keep and eye on them and watch how they interact.
