    Both of my Barred Rock roos have these spots on their combs. This one shown in the pictures is the most dominant so I can't imagine it's from pecking. They're all kept in a closed fence and at night they're in an unheated, closed coop. It's never gone below 32 degrees Fahrenheit in there. Please help! I don't know what it is.

    Doesn't look like fowl pox to me. Looks like normal bangs and bumps from sticking their heads in places they maybe shouldn't.
