    Hello, we have a 1 year old hen whose comb is still red but tonight the comb was laying over to the side a little. She seems to be acting fine but this concerned me. If her comb still has good color and she is behaving ok is the comb laying over ok or could there be anything wrong with her?
    Thank you!

    Sometimes a comb will hang over a little when it completely finishes growing. The comb can sometimes get so heavy that it can't stand upright. If that isn't the case, sometimes combs flop over during molting. It's perfectly normal, so no need to worry.
