    This poor hen looks aweful. Shes molting right now, got a scratch on her back from our roosters spurs, which ive taken the very tips off off, btw, and now she has this strange growth on her beak.....ive separated her into a cage but she hasnt touched her food or water in 4 hours...is that ok or could she have something stuck in her mouth? is it maybe an enflamed mucous gland? should i try to puncture it? I havent a clue! help!
