    Two days ago I observed a small scab on my one year old Cuckoo cochin rooster's comb. I applied an anti fungal cream on the comb. Next day there was a scale on his comb it looks like an old skin shedding off. The skin beneath this scale seems fresh and fine. Please let me have your opinion

    It is just old skin coming off. My single-combed cockerels often get dry skin on their combs in the fall and winter. I've found that applying some antibiotic ointment helps with the dryness.
