    I was told right before hen start laying their combs will turn bright red... It did and now my hen has a very pale comb? She has been laying for almost 2 months, I get 1 or 2 eggs from her daily... She does not act sick, and eats drinks normally but it's strange to see. Pink comb instead of the bright red one she had?

    My hen went broody these past 3 days, perhaps that's why she's pale??

    Being broody can make a hen's comb paler too.
