    Hey all fellow chicken owners :) I haven't been on for awhile bc our chickens have been doing well. They are almost 8 months old now and have been laying nicely. I guess I'm just paranoid they are all gonna get sick and die. Our little banty rooster, I noticed today, has a really black and blue comb. His comb is wide and flat anyway not one that sticks up on his head. My husband says he was probably just in a fight with one of the other roosters. Do you think he's ok?

    Larger combs like a roosters can have blood circulation issues so it is normal for some off coloring to come and go. Sometimes a poor circulation due to a heart condition can cause discoloring. With your young one I wouldn't worry too much. And maybe he did get bruised somehow.
