I have video also if is this not enough, any help will be appreciated.
They are two hens in this pen with a peacock, both hens have this.
I'm sorry that I can't help you, poor girls! And poor you!
I have never seen this before, but it may be some kind of infection, a fungus, or a reaction to mites?
Hopefully someone will give you advice soon, but in the meantime, it might help if you can add some details about the poor girl's condition, such as:
Is there any way for rats to get into thier pen? it looks like something has chewed on them.
It could be from the male but seems like the crest would be missing if he was this aggressive.
I am just throwing ideas out there cause i have never seen anything like this, i have seen neck scalped but they did not look like this the skin was just town, in your photo it looks like the injury is down into the meat.
I would like to see the video mabe we can pick up on something not seen in the photo.
Are these your birds
P-Dawg did something like that to one of the hens with him.
Looks like it could be a scab and infection. -Kathy
My first thought was mites because few months ago there pen was close to a chicken pen that has one chicken with mites, they are so far from the chicken now, i will check them again to answer your questions, thanks for you help.
Yes they are my birds , there is some rats near their pens, can rats cause this? they are really tiny rats. Their male is so nice he has never picked them or something like that.
If it was scab and infection what should i do? I'm going to visit the vet in two hours, what should i get from them, i think they don't know much about peafowls.
