    I went outside this morning to let the girls out to run
    around and I happened to notice this! It looks like the little tip of her
    comb is not getting enough blood to it. She is in all good spirits and seems
    to be fine. Is there something I can do to help because I'm not sure what
    is happening.. Thanks

    Look at it carefully in case a small hair or string has become wrapped around it. More likely it is an injury which has bled, perhaps from a peck. Lastly frostbite can look like that if that part became wet and froze. There look to be tiny dots on her comb that could be little peck wounds, so I'm leaning more toward a peck injury. Nothing really needs to be done, but you can use iodine or plain Neosporin ointment on it if you wish.
