    Hi all, one of my barred rock hens has black spots on her comb and the comb itself looks a little odd. Is she ok? Otherwise fine - laying well, eats like a champ, no other unusual behavior.

    Thanks!!!

    Is this recent? You haven't had frost up there yet, have you? My Leghorn has spots on her comb which go back to last winter's frostbite.
