I would be happy to post a pic if you're interested but it's NSFW to be sure.

 

I think that would be quite useful.  When people do searches looking for answers, pics are very helpful.

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.

Couldn't remember if I had posted the pics or not - see post #12 in the above thread.

 

I washed the area with warm water which removed a lot of them, them spent at least an hour (maybe two) gently removing others out with tweezers. Gave her antibiotics and I think dewormer to help kill off the ones I couldn't get...it had almost healed completely when she ended up dying for other unknown reasons.
