    My first molt on only one of my 6 girls. She is doing well, but her comb is very pale pink. Is that common? She is eating, energetic, no eggs and all the feathers are about back. It was quick, about the beginning of November, she stopped laying completely.

    Thank you!

    I think you're correct, my girls that are going through molt or the ones who just stopped for the winter their combs have turned pale pink but they all are as healthy as can be but the combs got smaller and pinker, so I chalked it up to molt/winter.
