    Please post your photos at once, at "Emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread. This looks to me like some bad skin infection possibly aggravated by maggots. Are your hens pecking at each other? I would wait for expert opinions before doing anything rash but, would have her separated from your others, in case this is contagious.
