    The Austalorpe has had these black spots in her comb for s while now, but they seem to be spreading. Is this just her coloring, or is something else going on? None of our other chickens, including the Austalorpes have black on their combs.

    The Welbar's comb seems to be growing crooked. She is about 9 weeks old. Is this normal for the breed. I'm guessing she won't face health issues from it, but I'm curious why it is growing that way.

    Thank you for any advice!

    Looks like it is just the coloring of her comb.

    The crooked comb, is most likely just the way it is growing.

    Neither looks like anything to be concerned about.

    Just my opinion[​IMG]
