I did a search for sunburn, but I just wanted to check and make sure that nothing changed. I read that sunburn does not hurt the chicken. I have two barred rocks that are bald above the tail and were pink to start off with. After being in the sun the redness is getting darker. Just wanted to check to see if I should put anything on the skin or not. No blisters or injuries. I don't want to lock them up because it will be awhile before the feathers are back enough to protect.

Not to worry. They get bright red but I have not experienced any damage from the sun on any of my birds.
