    my chickens (all) have some brow or dark patches on their combs. It has been their for a while and it doesn't seem to bother them. Now I really want to get rid of it on their combs because we just hatched some chicks and o really want them to be healthy!

    Can you post a picture? How long have they had it? Can you give more info about how big the marks are, etc? It could be fowl pox...or frostbite...or peck wounds.
