    Well, thank you ... there was another with reddened streaks forming on it's beak, but ... can't treat 'em for it, as they are both oddly missing tonight, along w/ six other small bantams that were exhibiting similar symptoms. Here's what she looked like just before it got dark outside:

    Thank you ... all eight chickens began developing these growths upon their head, but only the one had the red streaks forming on it's beak ... before they went missing, it was almost as if it were glowing ...

    Well? They're back (the birds). And, the growths appear to have been temporary in nature. Even the streaks of redness on the one has all but disappeared.
     
  9. Hmm. We need to post an article on this....

    :lol:

    It's the oddest condition I've come across in quite some time, and there appears to be no research available from which to find definitive results, but it does appear to happen shortly after the official start of winter ... just checked a while ago, and there's little evidence -- the growths have most nearly faded completely, just as suddenly as they appeared, and required no treatment of any kind. Ain't that wierd?
