    I can't tell if she is getting some more feather hence normal or if she is being picked on. I haven't noticed anyone picking on her and she is kinda fiesty.

    This is pictures. There is just the smallest amount of scabbing. There is new feathers coming in. Her skin seems very yellow.

    22 week old barnie (suspect part ameracauna) eating fine, drinking fine, running around, some panting (but hot here).
    No conditions I know of to make the spot.
    She has had it for 3 to 4 days maybe.
    Don't know if she is laying yet. I have two that could be green egglayers, she's one. And I'm getting one green egg a day or so. (50% it is her)

    Edited to add hopefully useful information.

    do you have several roosters? Looks like treading from breeding. Get her a chicken apron.

    Should have seen that question coming. Sorry no rooster that I'm aware of. No crowing or rooster behaviors.

    Quote:I haven't deloused lately. How would I know if they have lice. In looking at her I didn't see anything obvious. I also have seen her continuelly pecking at herself. I know the yard does have some fleas. Do they get fleas?

    I guess I can try a DE bath I don't want to use chemicals if I don't have to.

    thanks for the suggestion.

    When you pick her up inspect close to the skin and around the vent is easiest place to look for fleas.
