I have a 2 year old black sex-link hen that I noticed today had something hanging on her back. I went after her a little to see what it was and noticed it was stuck on her feathers. So we caught her and found a big chunk of dried up skin (about 6" x 8") stuck to her back. It looks and smells like cooked chicken skin! What it looks like happened is her skin got damaged some how (sunburn? bugs?) and then it died and shed off, but it was stuck under her feathers. So I had to unthread her feathers from the holes in the skin. I had to tear some of it in pieces to release the feathers. Has anyone seen this before? I am not sure what happened to her. She does not have a bare back to get sunburned. No injuries. Her feathers look pretty new, could this have happened during a molt? Her skin underneath is healthy looking. So strange!
