    One of my Houdan Roosters has been very active, I noticed tonight his comb , wattles and skin in general is very pale, more orangey than red. He seems to be acting fine, maybe a little quieter than normal. I went ahead and gave a little Poly Vi Sol.

    I worm them regularly and keep them checked for mites etc, he is in a pen with just a few other birds and they have a large feeder and waterer.

    I don't know if I should be worried about him or not.

    I notice changes in comb color fairly often in my hens, although usually from medium to deep red. I worry when the combs go limp (dehydration, perhaps?) but not about color if the animal is otherwise acting fine.
