    I am new to chicken keeping. 1 of my hens has developed a dint in her feathers in the front and I was just making sure she is ok and there is nothing wrong with my lovely lady. She is happy and healthy otherwise.



    Thank you for looking. I am probably being silly.

    Freaky, I have never seen that before. Can you pull the feathers back out and fluff them. Maybe she just leaned on something and stuffed them into her chest. It is too high to be her crop. I wouldn't be too worried about it unless other symptoms were present.
