    I have a 4 yr old Rhode Island Red rooster. His comb has gone from a bright red to a very light orange. What should I do. He has no other symptoms of anything and is acting as normal. Help?[​IMG]

    How hot is it by you? Excessive heat might do that. Molting could also be a cause. Get Mr. Roo cooled down [if that be the case] and see what happens. Give electrolytes / protien / yogurt to help jump start the system.

    He probably needs to be wormed and deloused.
