    One of my girls has a very red under belly. It is not an open wound it is just very red and looks very sore. Any thoughts as thoughts on what it may be?

    Inspect her closely for mites or other parasites.
    Is she broody? Sometimes broody hens will pluck their feather out to line the nest, leaving behind red skin.
