    Darkening Comb on Cockerel

    My serama/d'uccle mix cockerel had a completely normal looking comb until about a month ago. Since then, it has progressively gotten darker, and is now almost black. I am especially worried because this cockerel was born with a split in his breastbone. Also, his siblings still have perfectly...

    A purple tinge to quarantined hen’s comb??

    She wasn’t feeling well so we separated her from the flock a few days ago, in an XL dog crate in a very low lit area of the garage with food and water with Corid etc. Today she seems really improved but her comb has turned a purple-ish tint on its edges? Is it not enough light or something...

    Comb turning purple??!!?!?

    My hen's comb is purple at the end. its not swelling, just... purple. Also, it feels cold, and that bit of her comb is thinner than the rest of her comb. She does have coryza, could this be a side effect? Or is this because of some circulation problem? I'm lost here

    Rooster's extreme reaction to vet visit

    Hi all, I took our two Seramas for their routine nail clipping yesterday and things went a little differently than usual: normally she has a mad flap and won't settle down and he looks after her. This time, she quietly took the clipping (guess she's getting used to it) but he went into stress...

    Egg bound pullet?

    These are not the best pictures but this is my BR pullet (she’s a late bloomer, I think anyhow). She has been standing in the nesting box a lot lately, even at mid day with everyone else outside. She is eating for sure, as I’ve seen her, her crop seams softish. She is up and moving around and...

    sick chicken! help

    I work with the chickens at my school. Today, I noticed that a hen has a nearly violet colored comb, is lethargic, and when she got picked up, a ton of drool came out of her beak. These symptoms seem to have appeared suddenly, what could be the cause? I'll attach a picture of her ASAP

    What killed my hen and how do I keep my flock healthy?

    Yesterday we lost our one year old Australorp, Peppa. The day before she came out of the hen house with the rest of our flock and seemed normal at breakfast. A little while later we went back down to the coop and noticed that she was letting out a runny, stinky green-brown poop. Then she went...

    Danish leghorns comb turning blue

    I have noticed this before and again today. Both of my Danish leghorns have purple spots in their comb, it's as if one side of it is turning blue. They're acting normal, eating well, laying eggs. I'm going to attach some photos. Unfortunately, I am in a boot, and can't chase them right now ...
