    I have 2 roos and 1 hen with some black spots on their combs. Still learning the ropes , but I was wondering if there was any webpage that would have pics so I could look and see what it might be . The Roos are acting fine , eating and drinking okay .... my hen she is eating and drinking fine as well, BUT just 2 days before I seen the spots she was walking around in the pen kinda of making a whining sound . I thought it might because there was a new egg in the box ( I didnt know who laid it ) it was not the egg song , and she has not done it since . Thanks

    Could be just scabs from getting pecked or possibly frostbite, depending on how cold it is. As long as they are acting fine and not showing any signs of distress, I would not worry about it. But if you would like, you could post a picture of the combs so that we can make sure it's not something serious like Fowl Pox.
