Very pale comb? - Page 2

Yes she is. What should I do about it? Is it disastrous?

My hen's faces get pale from time to time, it's honestly probably nothing unless coupled with something else.

What kind of food do your hens get?

I feed them the layer crumble. They are also let out of their run every day too so they can forage. I'm hoping it's just her adjusting to new home and the stress of being low on pecking order. She is laying and seems ok otherwise. I'm so new at this that I'm unsure what to look for.

It sounds like you're doing everything great to me. The layer feed will give her the nutrients she needs to support her body, free-ranging gives her an extra boost. It very well may just be her position on the pecking order. Maybe she's about to start her molt.

Maybe. She is only about 6 months I think since she just started to lay. Thank you for helping out.

wait, plot twist, a pale face can be caused by worms! I have a book in my lap right now!
