    They probably aren't bites. They are rough areas where feathers grow.

    Out to pasture
    Has she molted recently? These may be where pin feathers will come through. Do you have anyone to help you take pictures?

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    I'm thinking that these "pimples" are really feathers growing in, or places where feathers will grow in. The question is, why aren't the feathers there. It's possible that she is getting picked on or is molting.
