    I have a beautiful rooster that I would like to show. I have noticed that he has what appears to be a white dusting on his comb. What would cause this and how can I treat it?

    Hi there, [​IMG]and welcome to BYC!

    If he is molting or has just finished molting, the white dusty appearance could be from the low hormone levels. You also might post this question with pics in the emergency section of the forums.

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy BYC!

    Welcome to BYC. The white dusting may be normal or there may be a problem. A picture would help.
