    Hi guys. I'm new to chickens. My Skokie rooster has yellow on his comb. Did some searching and can't find anything. Anyone know?

    I will try to get a picture when the husband gets home. The comb was all black and has changed.

    That is strange, I've never heard of black changing to yellow . If you post at the ER section or anywhere else. PLEASE post photo also. Maybe you mean the "crest" feathers not "Comb" Feather colors can change quite a bit as chicks mature.
