    Hello,

    I have just noticed this on one of our ex-batts that we rehomed around a month ago. They have all been growing feathers well, but yesterday I saw a bald area on one hen's neck and a large black area of skin. I can't see any mites, blood or infection, but it looks similar to a blood blister.

    She is behaving normally. There is no smell and the black area feels like normal skin.

    I wonder if anyone has seen anything like this before and could advise please?

    Thank you so much!

    It kind of looks like a healed up wound...like maybe she was pecked or caught it on something??
