    One of my barred rocks just got this black mole on her comb. It's not flat. There does not seem to be any other new skin marks so far. The bird looks otherwise healthy, with good appetite. She is not laying at the moment as i let my chickens have natural rest during winter time. What can this one be? Does it look like Fowl Pox? I'm new to this, so any advice is much appreciated!

    To me, this looks like a scratch or peck mark/scab. It should heal within a week or so.
