    Saw this on the chickens comb today and not sure what to think about it, she's one of a batch of rescue ex-caged hens so condition is not brilliant but we would like to make sure no one gets any worse. She's about 15 months old and we've had her for almost 3 weeks.
    There is a bit of dried blood there also I think IMG_20180917_160847.jpg IMG_20180917_160845.jpg IMG_20180917_160836.jpg IMG_20180917_160843.jpg

    because one of my younger hens has the same thing and it is from the other two hens pecking at her comb.

    She would be with 5 others at the moment roaming around the garden. Would that cause the bumps too ? I know they do peck at each other at times

    The bumps might be from the peck marks scabbing over but as long as they keep pecking at her comb it might leave scars.Don't worry though it will heal up as long as she is kept away from them and you should probably put some anti peck stuff on her comb so that theiy will leave her alone.and by the way,she is beautiful.

    she might be last or second to last in the pecking ladder which would mean she would get pecked more often.

    I'll try picking up some of that then and will find a place to keep them separate for a bit. And thank you, I think so too :highfive:

    It is indeed, I'm glad she's most likely not sick and we can keep her away for a bit to give her a chance. Thank you very much for your help :)
