    I noticed an area on my chickens beak it's scab like and I touch it and it bled ever so little it's getting bigger. She also looks like she was molting. I lift up her feathers where she doesn't have feathers and she has the new pin coming in where the feather should be in the skin around the feathers looks a little flaky and dry. Her, slightly pale but not too bad. I just wasn't sure if I needed to be alarmed or worried. What is the on her beak?[​IMG]

    Does it extend into her mouth? Check for any plaques or lesions in her mouth.

    I didn't see it in her mouth. My vet sees "exotic animal" and chickens fall in that catagories lol so I made an appointment for next Monday she is eating fine. Pooping fine, poops are normL, she is even laying eggs and walking around normal.

    The scab fell off BTW and she is still molting. She finally is starting to grow some feathers back. She hasn't laid an egg for over a month nkw due to molting :/ oh well lol at least she is ok.
