    No pictures, I do think I panic in my post. Going to keep an eye on her for a few days, as I am a paramedic and know a little something. Keep u posted, thanks for the reply.

    If your weather is humid it could be the beginnings of a fungal infection.

    It could also be Fowl Dry Pox. Google the term and see if your white spots match the pics. We've been treating our dry pox with Betadine. Helps them heal fast which keeps the disease from spreading so fast. Good luck!
