My RIR's comb seems paler than it used to be. Also the leghorns. I have been reading that is could be a sign of worms? I have been looking for signs of worms in their poop, so far haven't seen anything. Does the comb color look ok? These are 22 week old chickens, just started laying in the last few weeks.

The comb colour looks fine to me. Perhaps worm them to be sure (when were they last wormed?) In the second pic, what is one their comb, looks like a scab from a fight perhaps?

My Leghorn had a scab on her comb when I had my roosters (now they are gone for this reason). He would mount her and bite on her comb and I am sure it hurt like heck.

That's why I got rid of them.

Not sure if it's from the rooster or fighting - both leghorns are pretty aggressive.
