Does it look like some sort of insect larvae or lice eggs? Does she have any bugs on her skin if you part the feathers?
I just .iNspected her very well I see no bugs of any kind. When I get close to that area to move the feathers it must be very tender because she Chirps
Is it a tumor or an abscess? Do you see anything that looks like a peck mark? Is it soft and puffy, or firm?
Looks like it could be hard chicken pus.
There is a peck spot on her back, not near this. Hard chicken pus??? what does that mean? what do I do?
Before I say what I would do, cause it's pretty invasive, can you take her to a vet?
I googled hard chicken puss, I feel very confident you are correct I have no idea what to do, aside from opening it up and buying expensive antis and reading further that didn't help those who tried it :'( i'm searching for a vet locally that will see a chicken, not finding much in the area....
You could try making a small incision and tweezer some out. It's a huge area, and I'm not positive, but if it is pus, I think you'll have to make a big cut and get that out, then clean it real well with betadine and figure out what the best antibiotic for it is. I just don't know enough about bacteria to make a recommendation. Maybe Baytril for gram negatives and amoxicillin for gram positives. Not sure how I would treat it other than removing the pus.
FYI, Baytril is cheap... ~$25 and you can buy it without a prescription online. Will send link later.
