    Yesterday I noticed that one of my hens has some small holes in her comb and the comb is red, no discoloration, Is that a normal thing? I am a beginner on chickens and still learning, I have tried to do some research online before I reached Out. She is eating fine, I have given Yogurt, and probiotics to them as well in their water. Has anyone seen this before or heard of what I Can do? It has no been cold here. TIA

    It's on my Rhode Island Red, I didn't think about getting a picture. I will get one shortly and post it.

    I haven't heard of holes in combs before, but it is nice to learn new things
