    My one and half year old hen has this blister frozen looking thing on her wattle. It was not there yesterday. She is still acting normal but[​IMG] it looks really bad and she doesn't really want me to touch it. What is it? Will it kill her? How can I get it to go away?

    To me, it looks like it is bruised. My guess is that another chicken pecked her. She should be fine in less than a week. [​IMG]
