    One of my hens had this what I do is I gently scratch at the area for 10 minuets and they usually come through never scratch hard tho, if that doesn't work you can bath her for 15 min in warm water then try again, after that you should always put cream on her such as baby rash cream or antiseptic cream hope she is ok
