    My fave chicken has developed purple on her comb, not all over, mostly on the edges, she has a big floppy comb so I was concerned that it was sunburn as I live in Australia and it gets hot, so I feel very sorry for her!! Does anyone know what the cause of this is?

    I'm not sure, but I wanted to bump you up onto page one so someone who may know can have a go. Do you have any pics?
