    ok, i was doing my check over of the girls today and noticed that one has some dried up blood under one nostril. Its about the size of two drops of blood. Im just curious, is this a sign of a potential problem or "just one of those things"? she (and all other chickens) seem perfectly healthy and fine. Im just curious, shouild i be looking for any other signs that might indicate something?

    your doing a good job keeping an eye on her. not sure what would cause a bloody nose, but more than likely another hen gave her another peck. see if she start acting strange. if you can, separate her from the rest of the flock and watch her. this is what i would do.
