    Ok so 1 of my ISA browns has had a very pale comb and been lethargic for the last few days, I noticed today that a couple of the other ISA browns have whitish areas on their combs. What could it be?
    - I put a dewormer in their water
    - put mite dust in their coop and we dusted them with it yesterday aswell
    - it has been around 30-35 degrees recently but now its back down to 16 (melbourne weather)
    - We recently lost a chicken to a respiratory illness

    I will upload pics too

    Thankyou for your reply, You could be right but I feel like the spots are very different but will give that treatment a try anyway
