Is it all right if one of my chickens comb is slightly blue on top
Is it frostbite or is the comb naturally colored that way?
Hello and welcome to BYC!
It depends on how much of the comb is blue. If it is only the back tip, this could be something viral or even a bit of heart related. If the entire thing is blue, definitely something with circulation and heart. I have a hen that the back tip of her comb will turn a tiny bit bluish/purple occasionally. She did have MS years ago.
I don't know she was given to me by a friend
I've had her for four weeks and she acts fine
I don't know what MS is
Does their comb feel cold when you touch it?
No it's warm
Huh. well sometimes the tip of my chickens comb is purple and it feels cold probably because of bad blood circulation. Of course it turns back to a normal red once shes up and moving.
Now it looks whiter
Whoa. I've never seen a chicken with a white comb before....https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...nosis-so-heres-a-picture-of-ours#post_9797018
does it look like this?
No just on the back of the comb on its tip
