Hi, all - I just happened to pick up my 7 month-old RIR hen and put her under my left arm, rather than under my right as I usually do. I then noticed that her right earlobe (which I guess I don't usually see) has something seriously wrong with it: Is that a disease, or is this what a chicken's scab looks like (following some sort of injury)? For comparison's sake, here is a (very fuzzy) picture of her left earlobe, which is normal: Thoughts? Ideas for curing this, or will it heal on its own? FWIW, this is the hen that I wrote about a couple weeks ago, with the funny eggs and runny poops. The eggs have since gone back to normal (she had about a week's worth of unusable, leathery eggs). She does not appear to be in any kind of distress. She's her normal, aggressive self (she managed to get a good bite in on my today!) Thanks in advance for any help.
