    Quote:They could be a number of things. Without seeing a photo of them, it's impossible to know. However, most of the small black spots I have seen on my chickens' combs have been from pecking one another. Nothing to worry about as they heal and disappear.
    There are things that cause black spots on combs that ARE worrisome however. So, if you have a photo to post, that would be helpful. Also, are there any other symptoms that you notice besides just the spots?
