    My Barred Rocks comb doesn't stand up. It lays over to one side all the time and today it's literally resting on top of her head. Is there something wrong with her, why it lays down like this?? It's NOT pale or anything.. It's def bright red in color. I've enclosed a picture, but keep in mind that today it's actually laying on her head practically. Was wondering if it could be from the heat here?? We're in Florida!! Thank you in advance for your help!!

    It's either crossed with something or a flaw. Many Mediterranean breeds hens combs are supposed to flop over.
