Hello,
I’ve been a member for a while but normally just read and rarely post.
This is my rooster that I’ve had for about 4 years. He’s had this on his comb for a few months and but now it’s affecting his eye. I don’t know what it is or how to treat it. He acts normal and this is his only symptom. He is a jubilee Orpington if that makes any difference. I would prefer to avoid a vet visit but also don’t want to lose him. I figured I would ask on here for advice before resorting to taking him in.

It looks like a fungal infection - perhaps even Favus. I'd apply an anti fungal ointment to his comb and wattles.
