My pullet's comb turned dark purple/balck about 2 weeks ago, but in the last few days has started reverting back to red. During this period she was eating and acting normally, but not laying. She has now started laying again. During this time, I think her poop had also been a bit runny.
So I'm pleased that she seems fine, but I'm curious to know what might have caused it. Can anyone help?
For some background:
I live in Dubai, UAE and whilst it has been a hot summer, the change in comb colour didn't correspond with any change in temperature.
The chicken is some sort of cross breed and hardy in this climate - bought from a local poultry market, but I don't know any more than that (specific age for example) as no one spoke English and I don't speak Arabic.
The pullet started laying about 6 weeks ago.
