    Looking to see if anyone one has a clue what this is.
    Found this on the back of my California white between her neck and right wing. [​IMG]

    I live in Missouri.
    From the photo it looks kind of purple, it might a Bruise. I've seen bruises on my chickens that kinda look like that.

    Well.. Someone said it maybe her crop... I am at a loss. She was attacked by something and had a puncture on the other side of her neck.

    Then it's most likely an injury from being attacked. I think she'll be fine I've seen way worse, chickens are amazing healers, I wouldn't worry about it. Hope she gets better soon.[​IMG]
