I've posted this in a few places with little or no response so I'm trying again with a catchier subject. This is really a question for Orpington experts. I have a 9 month old Buff Orpington. She is the sweetest thing in the world and I just lover her. But she really wears her emotions right on her face. Her face and ear lobs go from being really bright red, to quite pale and just slightly pink when she's stressed or not happy. Is this normal? And I'm talking about moment to moment. She obviously not old enough to molt. Her comb and wattles always stay bright red. For example, it was hot yesterday and when I came home, her face and ear lobs were quite pale. She was panting and had her wings open. I gave her some chilled fruit and wet down the shady part of their run for her. When I came back two hours later, the fog has started to roll in and the temperature was down 20 degrees and she was bright red again. I had an issue for a while where the EE was pecking at her when I gave them treats. I bought a spray bottle and nipped that bad behavior in the bud. But again, she would turn pale and come stand by my feet. So I'd scoop her up and take her into the house and give her a handful of mealworms out of the tub in the fridge. And again, she'd turn red again. My other hens (who are not Orpingtons) don't do this. So I'm curious, anyone else have a hen who does this?
