    I have seen pictures here of a hen with a hole from an injury, and her tongue came out the hole. Hers was larger. Does yours look like something poked the hole like a piece of wire fencing? Could it be infected? I would probably clean it with some disinfectant, and make sure that she is getting enough to drink.
