    A few months ago I noticed a yellow spot on the back of my Sussex hen. I thought she had just gotten dirty, but lately it has spread. When I took a closer look, some of the feathers in the area were broken and rough with abrupt edges. Other than this she appears bright and healthy. Any ideas what it's from or how/if to treat it? Thanks! [​IMG][/IMG]
