This might be a dumb newbie question. My other-half brought home two new hens. We don't know much about their history, but I was giving them an inspection and noticed that one hen (we'll call her hen#1 for now) had scabs on her back right above her tail. There were also feathers that seemed to have been broken off. There was also a big red bump above her tail. Also, the other hen (hen#2) seemed to have no tail at all. Can that be? Here are pictures. Maybe this is simply from being pecked at by other chickens or roosters. Or maybe this is some kind of disease or serious injury.

Closeup of Hen#2's "tail" Let me know what ya think. Thanks!!!!
