so today my six chickens were free ranging in the yard for about two and a half hours under my supervision from the kitchen that looks on out to the yard. they had a typical free range, mostly digging under a pine tree and the shrubs. the abnormal thing is, when i went to put them in their run, i noticed our head hen Ellie had some bloody spots on her neck! recently they have been broody (our first eggs came last week!) and picking on one another but nothing too serious. what could this be from? our other colombian rock Sunny had one or two spots like this but not nearly as many as Ellie. could there be a simple explanation for this? like i said, my family and i had our eye on them the ENTIRE time!!
