    any one have any clue? When I got her a few days ago the lady who sold it said this chook had mite eggs but she had killed all eggs and all mites. could their be some alive ones? I really don't know. anyone??

    So it changed colour while you watched? Is it a wound that has clotted into a bump?

    I'm not sure. It was bright red then I just waited an hour then I came back and it had changed colour.

    Uh oh.... my silkie hen (Shadow) had that spot (which is there small and dark dark red/black) and I was just carefully taking some of the dead mite eggs of her face and when I got a little of there was another red pump. but not as big and it wasn't wet at all. it was dry as soon as I found it. What could it be??????????????[​IMG]
