    Hello, this is my first post and I need some help. We've discovered some black spots on our hen's combs as well as dry white patches. We've tried to figure it out and it doesn't look like fowl pox but this is our first experience with raising chickens so maybe it is the beginning of it or something. Can you all take a look at our pics and share some experience. We are very worried that it is something catching since we lost one last week and that's the first one we lost. There didn't seem to be anything wrong, and we don't think it was a fight or anything, she was just lying in the coop one morning, dead. [​IMG] I can't figure out how to load more than one photo. If there is a way, please tell me because I have a couple others to share. I added more photos in the replies. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
