I can't see too well but when a chicken gets pecked on the comb it leaves a little black scab wich I believe is dried blood. My hen low on pecking order occasionally will get little black spots on her comb.

Then there is a good chance it is fowl pox, but that will go away in a few weeks. There isn't much you can do for it, and once they have had it they build an immunity to it. (very similar to us having chicken pox - kinda ironic
