    Welcome to BYC.

    As @runt325 suggests it may be dirt.

    It's possible it could also be bites from insects or flies. Try to clean it/wash it off so you can inspect the comb.
    If you feel like you need to put something on it you can apply some plain neosporin or vetericyn.

    Wait til tonight when he's roosting-- it will be much easier to handle him, clean the comb and apply ointment [​IMG]

    I don't mean to sound dumb ... someone told me it was some kind of fungus and that I needed some kind of stuff to put in the water that I can't remember the name of tetracycline Maybe

    I'm very curious to know how he could get a type of fungus he doesn't go anywhere but in my yard never leaves but about a hundred feet from the house that I do not have any other chickens or farm animals I only have 2 large dogs I love this rooster very much he comes when I call him by his name
