Droopy comb and dark spots

I have one hen whose comb is droopy, has black spots (scabs?), and is pale. The other 5 appear normal. She also seems to be molting?? We’re out free ranging right now and she’s eating and drinking like normal. However, when we hand feed them in a group she is noticeably less assertive so may be she’s being picked on?? It’s also 102 today and has been consistently hot for a week. Yes, they have access to fresh water.

My chickens are 14 months, they’re my first flock so these things are new to me.

I’m not sure if this is one thing or multiple things going on with her simultaneously.

Everyone else appears to be clear. It seems those black bits were scabs that have healed and fallen off. Now it’s at the ashy/white stage of healing. if it was fowl pox, would this cause the droopiness and losing feathers?
