My chicken keeps getting black on her waddles and around her

Customer Question

My chicken keeps getting black on her waddles and around her eye. I can wash it off, but it never seems to go away. What should I do?

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a photo of her wattles/eye to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if that icon is visible) or you can use an external app such as imgur.com or dropbox.com. I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing. It sounds as if you're describing avian pox lesions.
