    Not too sure on where i should have posted this? my 8 month old pekin has acquired a floppy comb... has been like this for about a week now, although she seems fine in every other respect.... any ideas as to why this is ?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Is the comb nice and red in color? I wouldn't worry unless the comb looks pale.

    I bought six chicks from TSC in the "red pullet" bin, and one of those gals has a floppy comb, but she's healthy, and the comb is nice and red in color, so I think it's just because the comb is large.

    And her name is......FLOPSY! [​IMG]

    If thats the name of a chicken, then it just means that the chicken needs more sun light. [​IMG]
