Why does my hens comb seem to enlarge sometimes ? I thought they were supposed to be small.
You mean it grows and shrinks? That's odd.
Yes, It is generally small but now it's big.
A hen's comb will enlarge and redden as she gets close to laying. Can also enlarge when a hen becomes the dominant hen.
Ooooh, well that would explain why she has been laying in her nesting box alot lately. Thank you! I was afraid that it may not be normal.
