    One of my hens has a very hard, crusty yellow comb and some on her wattles.

    Nearly all the comb is under this crusty stuff......looks like a cookie.

    I tried to pick some off, but its like rock.

    How can I get rid of it?

    I have 12 chickens and she is the only one with this.

    The coop is dry and clean so I have no idea how she got it.

    Some people have used Monistat and claimed good results.

    oh dear..........I think mine is much worse. I will go out and get a photo when I get back from work.
    They had fowl pox, and some got this yellow crusty stuff on them after they got over the fowl pox, but all of them cleared up.

    i thought she would also loose the crusty stuff, but hers has got worse.
