    Hello BYCers,
    Two of my six chicks have developed crooked combs. One of them has a little bitty comb that looks messed up in the front (maybe as a result of others pecking her), the other one's starts off straight in the front and then makes a definite swerve to the right (if you're facing her) as it gets to the back. They are both Columbia Rock chicks, one month old.
    Thanks for you help!

    Unfortunately I don't have a digital camera... [​IMG]

    Other than the crookedness, nothing else seems to be wrong with the comb, or her...except her legs and feet have started getting a bit dry. I'm gonna add some things to their diet to see if it helps (There are no mites or lice on her legs)
