    I have a red sex link hen which has some missing feathers from pecking and I was checking on it to make sure it had no open wounds when I noticed this bluish green discoloration of the skin right above the missing feathers and I wanted to make sure it's nothing serious. [​IMG][/IMG]

    That appears to be bruising - which, given the missing feathers, is not surprising -- the soft tissue was damaged.
