Has anyone seen this type of abnormal growth on a hen? Yes, I know she has scissor beak. She's a three month old blue wyandotte, and she's quite healthy and happy. I have no intention of culling her until I see that she is suffering in some way. Her skull is obviously deformed, and the wattle on her left side isn't growing normally. The brownish spots are hard and crusty. Dried food maybe? I'm hesitant to pick them off for fear of wounding her skin around her beak. You can also see a lump over her left eye socket. If anyone can enlighten me, I'd appreciate it.
