    Noticed yesterday that my Buff Orp hen had a couple dark red spots on the top of her comb like dried blood but isn't. Noticed it after a cold night.

    Sounds like frostbite.
    Her comb just basically busts because it's freezing cold.To cure it,easily add vaseline and keep the sore (S) dry for at least another weak.

    Watch and assure she isn't picking fights with other birds,good luck.

    Thanks and I only have her and another hen right now and she likes to pick on it showing she is the dominant one.
