    I know pictures are down, but when they come back up could you post a picture? In the meantime could you describe it with all the detail you can think of? Where are they, color, etc.

    It could just be from being pecked at. Keep an eye on him and the rest of the flock. It could be a form of fowl pox, but I wouldn't panic yet. I'd consider small injury first.

    That could definitely be fowl pox.

    I just remembered that something got one of my Banty hens right around the time his leg was hurt. That could also explain mRks on his face.
