    A few of my flock I noticed tonight have pale combs and wattles....everyone has been acting the same and I noticed NOTHING yesterday! Is this related to heat?? It was about 85 today but as always they had TONS of cold water to drink. I thought it might be the start of molting but some of my little roos from this year have pale combs tonight too ....
    I have never wormed them and some are as old as 1 1/2. I plan on getting some Ivermectin tomorrow.Can someone tell me how to administer and how much for young ones,bantams,and LF? I had been trying NOT to have to worm them...but I think I may need to now!
    Oh...and the poo is all within "normal" range....
