    She seems to be happy and healthy. She's eating and active but her comb concerns me. Anyone know what this might be?

    It looks like it's wound(s) from picking/pecking and possibly some insect bites.
    You can apply some triple antibiotic ointment, Vetericyn or Blu Kote to the comb if you wish.
