Yesterday I noted that my New jersey giant pullet had what looked like oil on the back of her head. It looked like someone had greased her feathers down back there. Before I put them to bed I also noted that her face was dripping wet and her comb and wattles had taken on and extremely bright red hugh. I called a friend of mine who has had chickens for a while but she had no idea what it was. Today as I went past my coop I saw that my Black Cochin and welsummer are having the same symptoms. What is this? I am a first time owner so this could be something normal, but I have no way of knowing. NOTE: All three pullets are due for laying and have been showing signs for weeks that they would start.
