    I have 5 rhode island reds and one of them (my personal favorite) has some sort of black stuff around its eye/beak, i am pretty new to chickens so i was wondering if this is normal.

    Any help is much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Looks like it *might be* mites... can you scrape it off?
