    Hey guys- my girl Sylvia seams to have a very pale face, it's almost yellowish and her comb is dry. it's been like it for a little while- we have had a small mite outbreak which we seam to have gotten on top of... I haven't noticed her laying either which adds more to my concern, we do work most of the day so she could be and its going unnoticed.
    She is a Pekin Bantam, about 2years old.[​IMG]
    Any advice will be great!!
    Thanks Katie :)

    I can't say for sure but her molt might have been pretty hard on her and she is still recovering! What feed does she get?

    Oh poor thing :( they get a premium feed which has a bit of everything in it- as well as fresh veggies and meal worms daily.
