    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]

    More than likely, it is bruising. I would use some BluKote spray on her or cover her hen apron or saddle, so that the others don't keep pecking her.
