Hey Y'all, Any idea what this is and how to treat it? First pix is before we cleaned it with a Betadyne solution.

Dolly is a two year Americauna Splash. She is the only surviving chicken from her original flock. She is more like a pet, she has a diaper for when she wants to hang out in the house. She does free range with Guinea fowl, but we have NEVER seen them mess with her EVER. She is eating fine, but has bouts of watery diarrhea that resolve by eating yogurt and ACV in one of her waters twice a week. But she is a spoiled chicken and now doesn't want to eat yogurt. Her comb color is great. She hasn't laid this year and we have attributed it her being solo, but also acknowledge the Guineas may affect her laying.

Any thoughts are appreciated. TIA!

I think it is an infection but you need more replies to be sure
That seems to be the consensus after consulting on a few other forums. We are cleaning it for the Betadine solution and applying colloidal silver topically. Also putting a drop in her mash. She feels fine she lets us treat it no problem. It must be tender though because she will not eat corn on the cob which is her favorite... So I’m just cutting it off the cob for her. :)
