    A closer picture may help. Have you checked her for mites? Have you seen any fowl pox scabs?

    Yes we have checked for mites. No we have not seen any fowl pox scabs. I will try and get a better picture tomorrow.

    Your picture does enlarge with a click. I don't know what it is. Can you look at it with a magnifying glass?

    Just looks like she's been peaking in the dirt to me. Did you figure it out?

    My Faverolle had the same a few days ago. She had like mini pox or black spots all over her face. Then they went away. Her butt gets really dirty and I cut back the feathers that are dirty. Another Velcro-butt

    She is doing absolutely fine. No signs of anything wrong with her. It has become a little clearer not as black. Thanks for asking!!!
