Off color (grayish) comb... no idea.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Her wattles are the normal red but her comb is grayish, has been since I got her and it is not getting better. She eats normally, acts fine (not lethargic or lazy.) And she is pooping normally. Her comb is not dry. Help!

I really don't know from the picture, but it could be mites, fowl pox, or possibly pecking. What type of climate are you in? You might want to take another picture from a different angle. In the meantime I would look for mites and eggs around her head and neck.
