Hi, my first time asking for advice here. I picked up some Durvet vitamins and electrolyte for poultry because my girls don't get as many weeds and grass lately. Thinking that they might need an occasional boost, i mixed the gallon of water with a scoop as directed and the girls seemed to like it for an alternativebut still drink plenty of regular water with acv. Then a couple days later my Matilda who had a huge floppy comb (sort of like a floppy party hat that drooped down on her eye) has suddenly got a shrunken dry looking comb. She is eating and drinking fine, no discharge or vent stuff andher little white ears are now yellow. Eyes look normal and she's still a nervous Nellie like always... they are cream legbars. Ideas anyone.. should I be concerned?? Been about 3 days.

Preety sure it is the molt, all of them have started losing downy feathers, looking similar to Matilda and their appetites are fine. Live and learn I guess!
