Hey, does anyone know what a chicken who's comb has been stung by fire ants looks like?
I have 4 birds, their combs have grey warts on them. They are eating and drinking but not laying. Only about a year and a half so should be laying at least every other day. I know that there is a disease that has a gray comb as a characteristic but their combs are not all gray just the bumps. We just moved to Tx from Mo and fireants are new to us. They haven't seemed to bother the birds but recently a fire ant hill appeared in their pen so.....any thoughts?
lloks like you guys are right. Once I had the name, looked up the pics and there it is. Thanks so much. Now I know what to do
