Anytime there is blood drawn from a peck and it dries you get a little black spot on the comb. Like a scab. This is a good way too gage if the chickens are fighting. I check mine to make sure no one is getting hurt. But those spots are small and totally normal! I posted a picture of my chicken with a small cut in her wattle. Small dark scab. They heal pretty quickly thankfully!

Thank you!!
I did catch my silkie rooster pulling at her comb. So this must be from that.
Just wanted to make sure it wasn’t Fowl pox. I’m only into my 4 month of having my backyard flock. Just learning as much as I can.

Oh fun!! I’m actually only 6 months into mine but I did find out about this issue through this site. I don’t even Google anymore, haha! I come straight here and ask or search the archives. People here are absolutely wonderful. I wish you all the best!! 😁
