    [​IMG] What's wrong with her comb?

    [​IMG] Same thing here?

    [​IMG] And Greta's comb looks different then Evelyn's ( the first hen)

    I've been searching most of the day.

    I can't get a definite answer. Mites? Disease? Dust or pecking holes?

    Thanks for your attention in advance.

    They could be pecking at each other or they could have fowl pox...they can get it from mosquitoes and it usually clears up on its own in a couple weeks.

    My roos look like this from time to time. I believe it is pecking each other. Fowl pox is very blister-like on the comb/eyes. Your photos just appear like blood spots or dirt spots, not raised.

    Thanks all

    Just noticed this morning that some of their poop has mustard yellow in it?? Normal?

    I can't find any sign of mites on them or in their barn.

    Thanks for the continued help.
