    I'm pretty sure it's just a little pale patch by it's beak, (only on one side) but could it be anything else? Maybe previous injury?

    I think it should be fine :) Maybe the feathers/skin or something rubbed off. She should be fine :)

    It looks like she just rubbed her beak against something. Maybe she rubbed it against the feeder, or some wire. Its also possible that another chicken pecked her near her beak. Either way, I think she'll be fine.

    There are feathers there, they're just unpigmented, which is why I thought maybe an old injury. At any rate, it's going to have an interesting little face :)
