    Hi guys, recently noticed these bloody looking spots on the top center of the beak on two of our three chickens. I have no idea what this is.

    Some information if it helps:
    We are in Central Florida so its been very hot lately. Its only on two of the three buffs. Their run is sand/pdz and their coop is pine chips/pdz. I don't know what their pecking order is yet.

    Looks like it could be from pecking or possibly being cut on a feeder or fencing.
