    Is it normal for a hen with a very red comb for it to turn light pink during the time she hatched babies? If not, what is wrong?

    Hens usually get a bright red comb when they're laying. Now that she's got a family, she's not laying, thus.... a pale comb. Nothing to worry about. Congrats on her new family. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
