    I have 4 hens, they have been laying approximately 4weeks, and r 24 weeks old. They all have had nice bright red combs and wattles. This morning I noticed of of them has a light pink comb and wattles. Does that mean anything? Just want to make sure she isn't ill or anything.

    Not saying you don't have something to be worried about but I have read a few posts of this happening and then the comb going back to normal. I'd just watch her today and see if you notice any other changes.

    Also check her for lice and are there signs she is broody?

    Well. These are my 1st ever chickens. Loving it btw!! So, the only sign I would know of is if she doesn't want me to take eggs or sits in the nest box a lot. That hasn't happened. I'll google to see what lice look like and check that. Any other signs of broodiness I should look for? Thanks for your help!!
