    [​IMG] Hi Welcome To BYC

    We're glad you're here.

    It looks like your hen may have been picked on. You can apply some Blu-Kote or Pick-No-More to hide the redness. Watch their behavior to see if another hen is picking or if she is doing this to herself.


    If you need more assistance you can post on the Emergency thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    G’Day from down under poppins 2811 [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some good advice, I will just wish you all the best.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
