I just started with chickens. We have 2 barred Plymouth Rock hens. We have had them for about 10 months, and they are now one year old. No problems so far, both are laying one egg a day or every other day. Yesterday I noticed very tiny black dots on one of their crowns. I found no injuries or anything on her. I was able to take a wet paper towel and most of it came off. Is this the results from fighting, mites, pox or what?
