Hello! Maybe two weeks ago, my delaware hen laid a yolk and a rubbery egg-thing with a yolk in it on the top of the coop one evening. After that, she hasn't laid an egg since. Soon after though, I noticed a hard bump on one of her wattles that look scabbed up. Today, it's quite worse and bleeding. I also saw a small scab on one of her... ear skin flaps (sorry, forgot the name).

I don't know if the two things are related, but does anyone know what's up? She's the boss hen, so I doubt she's getting picked on.

edit: whoops, forgot to add the pics!

This is a picture of my Welsummer when she had it. Your chicken looks like she has a wound like someone pecked her or she got it stuck on something and cut it. But I may be wrong.

What a pretty hen :) I think you were right about the fowl pox... she has more spots now. I suppose I just wait it out?
And thanks for the help!
