    Should I worry about a hen that has suddenly started to roost near the floor of the coop? The feathers on the back of her neck are not fluffed up so I can see her skin, and her comb may be smaller than before (I can't remember if all the girls had large floppy combs).

    How old is she and what region do you live in?

    We live in Southeast Massachusetts and she is between 7 and 8 months old. I'm wondering if she has blue comb.
