    Hello:

    I just noticed yesterday that one of my hens chest is bald and red. See attached picture below. We are new chicken owners so we are unsure as to what is going on with her. I have 3 others that look fine. She doesn't seem sick at all as she is eating and drinking fine.

    Please help.

    Thank you!

    Could be breast blisters from perches or being broody.
