    Can anyone tell me what this may be on his comb and is it normal or maybe contagious if its a fungus or something?[​IMG]

    To me, that looks like scratches and dried blood. He probably got pecked by another bird or scratched it on something. If it's just an injury, it should heal within a week or so.
