    First, one of my black JG's never developed a red comb or waddles. They are kinda red, more black, kinda like old, dried blood. Here is a picture...will they ever turn red? Or is she some kinda freak? Oh, and she IS laying.

    My second question is,,,,I have a splash JG that has gone broody. I've never heard of a JG setting on eggs. Anyone else?

    Not sure about the comb...maybe it got frost bite???

    As far as JG going broody - yes, I have a JG hen that has been broody twice according to the lady I got her from.

    Quote:I don't think so, she started laying long before it got that cold. Thanks for the broody answer. Too bad none of the eggs will hatch. Guess I'll give her some golf balls,,,lol


    Here are my blues:
