Are they black spots to worry over?

Thanks for looking. Only the black australorps have it. Maybe it's just normal for them and I'm a worry wort...

It looks normal to me, they look pretty young. I have some chicks and grown BA hens. The chicks have black on their tiny combs but the hens have bright red combs now.

LOL! (I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing at me.)

I did the SAME thing, with my BA pullet when she was young. I read about fowl pox, then freaked out when I saw some small black spots on her little comb. So, I grabbed her and dabbed iodine on each spot. And I worried. Turns out, they were nothing but little bits of pigmentation. LOL!

They looked just like your black spots, btw.
