The color and flakiness you see are normal for a hen in breeding condition, the bit of what looks like an overgrowth is hypertrophy of the cere, which is a hormonal condition. You do not need to be concerned about it unless the nares become blocked, if that should happen the vet can remove the excess tissue.
