    Does it look anything like this? I noticed it today on my BR hen - though it involves her ear area too. I'm hoping she got stung by bee or something and it's not an abscess or something worse. She's acting normal.[​IMG][​IMG]

    The more I read about this, leads me to think my hen actually has an ear infection.
