Are you sure they are hurt or sick? You could post in the http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures forum and post a picture of it (and give more information). Good luck!

Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. As Chicken Girl1 suggests, the ER forum is the best place to post - please include a photo of the combs, as without one, its a bit of guesswork. It could just be insect bites causing a few small scabs or fowl pox. You can type "fowl pox" in the search box for photos and compare it to what you are seeing, pending advice from the experts.

 

All the best

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hello and welcome to BYC!

 

Are these black spots here and there on the comb? Many times black spots, ones that are not wart like or swollen, are where others in the flock have pecked the bird in the comb. When chickens are jostling for the treats or defending their dust bathing spot or what have you, they peck the other bird in the comb. When the comb bleeds, it dries black leaving spots on the combs.

 

If the black spots are swollen and more like warts, they could have pox or some sort of mosquito born virus. Yes, if you have any pictures you can upload here, we can have a look see. If you have a PC, it is a lot easier to upload pics than it is from a mobile device. :-)
