    I noticed that Elvis is loosing his comb, how is that ? SHOULD I put something on it. He is
    only 7 month's old black bantam rooster. Is this normal . I dont see any fighting going on.

    What exactly do you mean by "losing his comb"? A photo would help a lot, or at least more description (is it bloody and mangled, covered in bumpy scabs, black and shriveling up, etc.)

    I finally was able to get a few pics of him, not sure if others are pecking on him, should I put antibotic cream on it, will it grow back ?
