She had it over the summer, the black spot wasn't big - I sprayed with blu vote a few times because I thought it was from picking. I didn't notice it for a few months and now, there it is again. It is soft, below the vent. Nothing hard. I tried to draw out fluid and nothing came out, could be that my needle is too small. She is healthy and happy. I have no idea if she is laying or not. She is a Black Australorp - almost 2 y.o. Maybe an infection? Thanks for any thoughts!
