    Just notice looking closely to my birds, that fore example 11 weeks old pullet, while siting calm, the face is white, but when something troubles her, face get red.
    Today saw my Vorwerk rooster chilling in sun with totally pale face, he had feathers around face before, but not now, after I pick him up and watch closely, face get back red.
    What is this?
    Had mycoplasma virus around.

    Africa - near the equator
    I am not sure about a disease, but all my chickens exhibit considerable changes in wattle / comb colouration throughout the day, so maybe its nothing to worry about.
