Comb and beard coloring

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Is it normal for the same breed of chicken to have a different colored comb and beard. This gal has a very light colored red beard and comb, and it has always had little black spots on it. She doesn't seem to act sick. The other chick has a bright red comb with no spots. We got them as chicks the middle of April of this year. Gosh these girls stress me out! My children love them as pets.

This is normal, their comb coloration will also change with age. As long as their combs arent super pale or dark (This is also dependent on breeds, silkies have mullberry colored skin for example), they should be fine. Black specks are common in black chickens, its a pigment thing.
