We had a girl get scalped by the rooster. Upon review we learned this happens. We were out of town. Our chicken sitter covered it in Blu-kote and put her in our isolation pen, attached to the run. She has healed up nicely, the skin grew back and feathers came in. The "nursery" as we call has an wire wall and the birds can see each other. We've integrated before with it and expect no real problems with that. Here is the issue. It was big wound. By the time we got back, starting to heal. With the mass of feathers and blu-kote we missed "pendant" of skin at the top, for want of a better term. A little lump of skin hanging out, 3/4 of an inch long. I reminds me of the little wattles of skin on goats. It is living skin and has tiny neck feathers. Right at the top of the head, behind the ear lobe. What we should have done was spread it out and bind it to the wound, so it could reattach. What has happened is the skin grew up under it and healed, and now she has this thing and I worry the others will peck at it. So. Should we cut it off? Note. These aren't pets. While we name our birds, we also slaughter. In fact, this one is known as Ms. Betty and is one of our most social and pleasant hens. Another bird, older, less social, might have not had the trouble put into it. Pays to be the nice hen.
