This is also on some of my hens. Fowl pox?
They do not act sickly all are laying and eating
Probably frost bite or are there other roosters around
With all due repect... frostbite in Orlando in February? That being said I am curious since I have seen that before on one of my roosters.
Oh ya should have looked to see were you were. I would say it's from other chickens pecking
One of my roosters had that too. I don't know how it started, but it got worse because the hens would peck at it. I'm in Texas and it never froze before it happend. It eventually went away
Could be avian pox (fowl pox) -- the dry kind.
Looks like pecking or scratches from sticking their heads through a hole in the wire with jagged bits sticking out.
all 26 of my pullets and hens and 3 Roosters live in the same coop and run.
I have seen my hens peck at the spots.
Oh yes, they looove to peck at spots. You have to separate them till the scabs fall off, otherwise they would keep pecking it off and it would never heal.
Mine eventually healed without separation (I couldn't separate due to the rooster situation). Some people will use blue kote for that.
