    I have a 1 1/2 year old BR hen. She is molting for the first time. I noticed today that her comb is also not as red as it should be, a bit dusty colored red. Is this a normal part of the molt? Or is the comb a sign of some other problem? She seems fine otherwise.

    Im in the same boat as you. My girls are molting for the first time too. Their combs and wattles are alot less red and they seem fine otherwise.

    Oh cool. Thanks! She's my first and only molt-er so I don't have anyone to compare with.
