    Hi all! My leghorn hen's comb and waddles are very pale, but none of my other chickens' are. She is also going through molting right now. Does anyone know what's going on? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    You need to get her on some vitamins. Molting is stressful on them. You might want to give her some extra yogart for her immunity.

    One of my leghorns is moulting and her comb is pale to. To help the process, I usually geed layer supplement which is 20 % protein, vs just the 16 of regular layer.
