"Greasy" head on hen

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My ladies are 3 years old and we've had them since they were chicks. My barred rock now has a greasy looking head, see pics.  No other chickens are exhibiting any symptoms and are laying as often as you would expect 3 year old chickens to lay. The hen in question has not laid regularly for at least 9 months, well before this ailment.  Any ideas?


They have a large run and get to free range in our fenced backyard every few days.

Is her tail up?  Have those black spots always been on her comb?  Is she preening as normal?
