What is this and how Do I treat it!

Bantam has been wanting to stay in nest box for 3 weeks. I make her get out in the yard and after 10 minutes she races back to her box.I just thought she wanted to hatch eggs. Now she's developer scabs/sores on her breast and around her eyes. Her box has been cleaned and it's dry. Now what??

It could be mites or she could be getting picked on by other chickens in that case separate her from the others and let it heal but if it's mites buy some diatamacious earth or some other non toxic mite killer powder and put it in their nests and on her

well yes she may have mites,
of which you should have seen them crawling on the body.
But using the mite spray in the cleaned out nest boxes and replacing bedding and adding the diatomacious Earth in the bedding of the nest boxes.

As for the hen
I would by some BLUE KOTE and spray the sore area of the spot where the sore is
.DO NOT SPRAY DIRECTLY ON THE VENT JUST SPRAY ON THE EFFECTED REDDENED FLESH
which the bottle of BLUE KOTE will tell you if you spray more than once.
HERE IS THE INFORMATION ON USING BLUE KOTE
Dr. Naylor Blu-Kote Indications
For the effective treatment of fungal infections, surface wounds, cuts, galls, hoof-foot and pad sores, chafes, abrasions, moist lesions, itchy fungus eczema and sores on horses and dogs.

BLU-KOTE® is a germicidal, fungicidal wound dressing and healing aid effective against both bacterial and fungal infections most common in skin lesions of domestic animals. Kills ringworm. Helps to dry up blisters and pox-like sores or lesions.

Dosage and Administration
Clean and dry the affected area thoroughly before spraying. Scrub and remove the scale and scab on ringworm before the first application. Shake well. Remove the protective cap. Hold upright. Point the nozzle opening toward the lesion and spray from a distance of 4-8 inches. Only a light application is needed. Repeat once or twice a day or as indicated until healing occurs.
Precaution(s): Danger: Extremely flammable (aerosol package).

The contents are under pressure. Do not puncture. Do not store or use near heat or an open flame. Exposure to temperatures above 130°F may cause bursting. Never throw the container into a fire or incinerator. BLU-KOTE® stains clothing.

Caution(s): For external veterinary use only. In case of serious burns, deep or puncture wounds, or if redness, irritation or swelling persists or increases, discontinue use and consult a veterinarian. Keep away from the eyes, mouth, nostrils, and mucous membranes. Do not spray in the eyes. Do not inhale. Do not use on cats. Prevent dogs from licking the treated area.

For over 50 years, PRID has been a must-have in both the family medicine chest and the tool box. PRID is an all natural approach to healing blisters, and for helping raise splinters, thorns, and ingrown hairs out from under the skin.* It a traditional drawing salve, that both soothes and protect wounds of the skin.

IT IS A HUMAN MEDICATION BUT VERY EFFECTIVE WHEN USED ON CHICKENS FOR SUCH AS EYE SORES.
You will need to isolate the hen like in a dog carrier for a week or so to find out what the medication does for the eye sores.
