    My banty rooster with "black comb" has just received his second shot of antibiotics. He is much better this AM. We will go hunting grass hoppers this afternoon. Does anyone know of a site that has information on "black comb" disease. Thank you in advance.

    I will try to get a picture uploaded to photobuckent, but I am not the best computer person in the world. Will try. His comb is like one big black scab, and his breathing has been labored. Got his 3rd shot today and he is better.
