    I have a 4 year old barred rock rooster that has an 'orange' head. He is eating, but sets around alot. All the others have bright read combs, etc. His is orange??? What's goin on with him?
    Thanks

    Is it possible for you to post a picture of him?

    This doesn't show how pale he really is. The one with the hen in the pic shows the color difference. ???

    Hmm...Well that could just be him?
    Have you de-wormed him at all?

    Does he by any chance have lice? Check for eggs near the vent and between the wattles.
