Is this a social issue or a contagion?

Much better pics, thanks!
That last one looks like it could be a peck wound....or dry pox(like most the others).
Looks like the front of her comb is just dirty from pecking at the ground.
I don't see anything to be too concerned about.

I think I might have something similar going on. I don't know if it's the same thing or maybe healing. If anyone knows that would be great.

Dry pox is a virus spread by mosquitoes.
Nothing to be done about it, it will clear up in a month or so.
Best to leave it alone as secondary bacterial infections can occur.

Same goes for peck wounds, they heal up pretty fast on their own...
...once the sometimes alarming amount of blood has cleared up.

Looks just like my leghorn, right down to the dirt streaks.

Such goofy birds, I think I'll be wanting more of them!


Do check quite well for mites. I had some crazy comb black spots long before I identified mites. Best to catch them rotten things earlier on. Otherwise, I think you'll all be fine!
