    Is she molting? Is she sick? Is it cold there? All these influence the appearance of combs and wattles.

    If they are molting give them lots of protein. If it's cold put some vaseline or coconut oil on their combs and wattles. If they are sick give them some ACV and garlic and ask in our emergency area.

    If it is cold then put vaseline on her comb and wattles to prevent frostbite.

    They aren't molting and she isn't sick but it has been a bit cold so I will try the vaseline thing. Thanks to all[​IMG]
