    i have a buff sussex hen who is just over a year old. over the last week i have noticed that her bright red face, comb and wattles goes a very pale pink sometimes and then very quickly turns bright red again. she is eating, laying and behaving normally. is this normal or is there something wrong with her?

    Since she's eating, drinking and laying normally...I wouldnt worry about it. Just in case, it wouldnt hurt to visually inspect her for lice/mites.​
