Hi- We're in Maine where it is cold and snowy already. (altho today it is balmy 30!) My 3 Buff Orps have been molting and not laying since the end of August. Yesterday I noticed all 3 combs and wattles have turned a sort of pale reddish-peach color and have shrunk! Is this major color change a normal wintertime behavior? I'm worried. Combined with the long molt and lack of eggs could it mean I actually have sick hens and not just a normal phase of chicken-ness going on? Thanks.
