I have a chick with what appears to be a grey comb. It is one of the 4 that I hatched from my chickens. I believe, from the breeds I have and the egg color, that it was a cross between my Blue Andalusian roo and my Black Australorp hen. I have never seen such a thing before---curious if anyone knows if it will remain that color or change as the chick gets older (about 5 weeks now).

Here's a pic--- hope it is clear enough

Thanks for the quick response! So that means it will get pink/red as it grows? I kind of thought so since I have never seen an adult chicken with a grey comb

Yes, it may. Or you may have had some genetic combo come up with grey skin kinda like pet quality silkies have. It's not really a bad thing, unless it doesn't fit with your breeding program.
