    I have 2 6 mo old BAs that started laying about 2 weeks ago. This morning one has a pale orangey comb, seems fine otherwise. They are on layer pellets with small amounts of scratch, greens and worms from our vermicomposter (red wigglers) for treats. They have a nice, dry coop and an outdoor run that is kind of muddy but full of fall leaves for bedding. We've had a lot of rain here with more to come and they choose to stay outside in it some of the time. Today I put a tarp over most of their run.

    Should I be worried? What precautions should I take? What should I look out for?

    Thanks for your help!
