I have six EE pullets that are 29 weeks old and a couple of them have some black spots on their combs. I also noticed that the one pullet that has the most spots also has a lighter color comb than she had yesterday. I don't think she had the spots yesterday either (at least not that I could tell). Does anyone know what this could be?? She was my first to lay an egg exactly two weeks ago today. The other bird that has the spots is also laying. I only have the two laying out of the six I have. Could it be associated with that?? Also, I have another girl that should be laying very shortly since she is squatting now and her comb is getting big and red, but I noticed a few days ago that she is missing feathers from her cheeks. She doesn't look like she is bleeding or anything, but most of her feathers on both sides of her face are gone. Do you think the girls are fighting with each other?? I've never seen them pick on each other so I don't know what happened to her feathers. This is the first time I've ever had any problems with them...I hope someone knows what's going on here and can help me out.
