    We went out to check on everybody and my little banty roo Buddy is turning gray around his eye and his wattle is turning gray too. His comb looks alright but he's gray everywhere else. He also has a few scratches on his comb so we were thinking that maybe he just got in a fight with another chicken but why would he turn gray like that?

    Hopefully someone will come along with the RIGHT answer... all I can say is that it seems to be that most miscolored (when they were red) combs are due to either something like frostbite or heart/circulation issues.
