    Looks to me like she just got pecked by another chicken. It used to happen to my rooster and the part where he got pecked turned black but eventually healed.

    Looks like another chicken pecked her to me. I would rinse it very well with some saline to get it clean then dab a little peroxide on it and keep her away from the other birds until it scabs up well. If it's very deep, you may want to keep her apart for a few days. Clean it up first and see how it looks.
