I have a hen that is nesting right now. Earlier this week I saw some feathers on one side sticking out more, I thought her legs were out of whack because she was laying. Yesterday I saw blood in the cage and she was holding her right leg up. Turns out she has a 3"x4" slab of skin and feathers sliced out of her side, still attached. I think she made it bigger, because her beak was covered in blood and I saw her eating/picking at the innermost part. Most of the visible part was dried... it looked like rib jerky, but where she was picking was bloody. It thankfully doesn't look infected, and she's now standing on both legs, but she has a definite limp, and the huge slab sways when she walks. I separated her from the Tom and she is now broody. I was wondering what I should do. Since it's not infected and mostly looks like jerky on her side, as well as since she's broody I feel like leaving her.
