    My name is Melissa and I i've just joined backyard chickens.
    I was wanting to no, I went down to collect the eggs from my 3x RIR chickens and have noticed that one of the chickens comb has completely gone and there is a slight indent from were it used to be. Is she alright Or have the other chickens attack her?

    Hi and welcome to BYC [​IMG]

    Do you mean she has a wound on the top of her head where her comb was? Or is it an older injury that has healed?
