Looks like bleeding scabbed over? I read an article that says the comb and waddles are so full of blood (or blood source) that you can literally pinch them too tightly and get blood on your fingers.

My hens get that. It's scabbing from being pecked or getting caught on something. In my case, I have a couple hens were will "fight" another hen out of "her" nest.

One has a chunk missing in her comb...the biting hen had her beak covered in blood...and the nest.
