Could it be a frostbite spot. Put a small amount of Vaseline on it get the vaseline melted by your fingers so you don't injure the area any more. Has it been cold there in KY? Do you have good ventilation in your coop. One way to tell is to check your walls inside if they have frost on them then you need more ventilation high up. Birds don't sweat so they get wet in a humid environment. they are warm blooded (106 F) poop makes for humidity and breathing. So check your coop. Dry bird are your goal.

The lowest here has been in the upper 20s. At what temp do I need to Vaseline them to prevent frostbite?
Also, I’ve never noticed frost inside the coop. The roof has some overhang to allow ventilation at the top..,
