    I've noticed today that 3 of my Cochins upper beaks are turning black. They are 12 weeks old and share a house with 3 bantams and another cochin and they haven't got this. They all act completely normal and poos are all fine. I'm in the UK and this is our first hot day, could it be that? Or am I doing something wrong! PLEASE HELP![​IMG][​IMG]

    Chicken beaks come in color variations- totally normal.
