My daughter’s Starlight Green Egger has a black spot on her wattle. I was unable to remove it. It felt adhered to the wattle—like if I kept trying to get it off I was going to pull off part of the wattle...almost scab-like. She is the only hen with this, but I did find a couple of what I think are red mites on the comb of another hen, & I will be treating the coop & the whole flock for mites. This black scab doesn’t look like a mite, though. I’ve been searching online & can’t seem to figure out what it may be or what should be done about it.

Oh, dear! Poor girl! Yeah, these chickens have kept us on our toes, for sure! The hiding of symptoms makes it harder to spot potential problems, unlike cats & dogs.
