Hi Everybody! I'm worried about my Barred Rock. She's a fully grown hen. I got her when she was a pullet, she free ranges with four other chickens. She hasn't started laying yet (which I assume is due to the weather and lack of light). She seems less active than she used to be, she doesn't come running to me like the other hens but does run away from me if I go after her. My main concern is that her comb and wattle have faded from a deep red to an orange color and it even looks like part of it has turned almost white. I've read that this could be normal but I need some reassurance if that's the case. I've been giving them rooster booster top dressing and the vitamin supplement for water. As an aside I thought she was ill also because she had some poop on her tail feathers, cloaca is clear. Moments ago I saw her deficate and the poo was normal, not watery or anything... so any loose stool has cleared up it seems. Thanks for any help. I appreciate you all being here! If it matters I'm feeding them all layer food. Am thinking about switching back to game bird grower (as I have some ducks that live with them).
