    Is this a problem? She seems fine except her comb is flopped over.... She's still laying, and enthusiastically comes flapping for treats...

    She's fine.

    I don't know why they do it, but some of our girls do it, too.

    Nothing to worry about, so long as she seems healthy otherwise. [​IMG]

    Yep, I agree, normal. My bigger combed girls do that.

    Normal!!! My leghorn hen has a huge comb for her size and it flops over too.
