    That would be bruising. Chicken skin looks greenish when bruised

    I have 6 new chicks (hatched 5/15/12) and 2 older layers. One of the chicks is being picked on- many feathers are missing. This morning I noticed a dark green color under a wing! Thank goodness for your posting- I guess it's bruising from the hen-pecking. I'll have to try to keep her away from the others. Not sure how to do that, though, they love to free range!
