    We've recently had to keep the chickens locked in their coop and yeard because of predation issues. It's been hot and humid here as well. What do you suppose could be the matter? [​IMG]

    That is correct. It was never very big but it was there and now it's gone. Poor Junie B.

    Not sure, but I'm thinking fungal. Wouldn't hurt to rub some iodine on everyone's combs..[​IMG]

    Iodine, ok. I'm also going to clean out the coop really well, keep it open all day and dust it tonight before bed.
