Does anyone know what this might be?
It doesn't have the look of fowl pox and I wouldn't fear anything just yet unless you observe the devlopment if lesions around the comb, wattles, or eyes.
Is she lethargic or normal?
He was getting picked on by a hen for a while, started letting him out of the run by himself during the day and that stopped. He is very mild mannered and sweet but seems healthy otherwise.
It may just be common pecking injuries and not much to worry about. If you do observe an lesions starting to develop isolate him if possible for his safety and the others in the flock. I really think he is fine and it is just pecking.
Thanks for the advice!
I've had roosters with those tiny black spots on the comb that looked exactly like yours. They're too tiny to be pecking injuries, but they never turned out to be anything serious when my roosters would get them.
I painted Blu-kote on my roosters black spots and that cleared it right up.
