    Newbie here that has not dealt with any illnesses yet.
    Any idea what this is and how to treat it?

    I'd like to know because I just saw a small mark like that on a hen of mine. Hope it's just a injury.

    Thank you for the info. Just two more questions. Since he is the only one showing any signs, does anyone know where to get the vaccine so I can "treat" the rest of the flock? Do I need to treat the guineas?
