I'm so excited to have found this form. I'm new to raising backyard chickens and, everything has been going fine until today. I have 11 chickens that I purchased in the spring who have been laying eggs for several months now. When I went to feed and water them this evening I noticed 2 of my chickens were bleeding from their upper back near anus/vent. Being a nurse I quickley got a sray bottle with peroxide and cleaned their wounds. They all are used to me picking them up so it was no problem, but I dont know what has caused ths wounds. I didn't see any fighting and I thought they were all friendly to each other. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you.
