    I recently got some new hens which seem to have very pale looking combs and wattles. They just look faded, they are otherwise eating great, laying eggs, pooping fine. Poop is brown with white looks healthy, no signs of disease just light red combs and wattles and kind of pink looking? What do you think?

    Thanks for any help.

    Any change is surroundings and environment can cause strange
    reactions in hens. I'd give them some time and watch for signs of
    disease such as nasal or eye discharge. Chances are they are just fine.
