new to this site. I have posted pictures of the hens I got from someone and one of the hem
comb is folding over what does that mean all the other hems are fine. Sorry but I don't know how to look up my other post..

Please forgive me ... the question is unclear ... probably because of my own ignorance.

Did you mean their crop or their comb? What do you mean by looping over?

I saw your pics, good looking birds :)
the comb.. sorry about that wasn't sure what it was called.
Okay, thank you! The crop is part of the digestive tract and I didn't want to give you a wrong opinion!

It is perfectly normal for a chicken's comb to be limp and flopped over sometimes. It is common to see after laying and can even look a little pale right after. If anything, it means they could use a little water just now ... but it is normal and NOT a problem!

More important Is color. If the comb is CONSISTENTLY pale, could mean a health issue.
