    My Plymouth Rock hen has a swollen black face. As I only got chickens half a year ago I have no idea what this is. She was a really healthy chicken before she went broody, she went broody in January and hatched 7 chicks. I will attach a photo of before her broodiness. But now after hatching chicks she is much smaller and lighter which i expected but something is wrong with her face.

    Please help me
    Thank you in advance

    She does have healthy behaviour, she is eating and foraging.
