Oh, I'm so worried about our girls! Early last week, I noticed our Ideal production white had blue tips to her comb. We researched what we could, and it said contaminated water was part of the problem, or not enough water, so we scrubbed their water bucket and checked her the next day and it was almost all gone, then the day after it was completely gone. We were hoping it wasn't going to be a continuing problem. Then we had to go out of town this weekend because we are moving 500 miles next month and needed to find a place to live in the new town. My mom checked on the chickens. I didn't get to spend time with them the first day back (because I was working a long day) and forgot to ask DH specifically, and he didn't say anything was wrong. Then last night when I got home from work I saw that not only was the one hen even MORE blue in her comb than the first time, but also a couple of other ones have blue tips! Oh, I'm just so terrified, everything I read says FATAL and CONTAGIOUS about blue comb. We have some antibiotics and are starting them today. We would have started them last week but with going out of town we had to delay. Does anyone have any experience with this? FWIW, the temperment in my girls is wonderful, they are all acting their normal selves. Something I read about turkeys said to warm them up, but it got to 87 yesterday and I don't think I could warm them much more, unless I wrapped them up in blankets. Please let us know what to expect.
