Just did a search 'bout purple tinged combs.....seems an indication of sick/poison. I got really stupid yesterday and threw a small toad into the run......... I just had one of my girls fly up & land on my shoulder--like she likes to do. She and the others are acting and eating fine; but when I looked, all 5 leghorns have purple tinged combs. I am only a little concerned....but I feel really, really stupid. I should have checked first. I wanted so much for them to have everything a chicken 'should' have..... . I will keep an eye on them today. Any suggestions of something that might 'flush' this sooner than later? Thank. p.s. it really was a small toad, and w/ 28 'girls', I was sure no 1 would have more than a taste.
