    It seems Gretta comb is paler then before. She is 8 months old. Any ideas?

    Yes, molting birds often get a paler comb.

    molting takes a lot out of a bird, they may eat poorly and stop laying eggs

    Thank you all for the help and welcome. Appreciate it. I love chatting with all the people who obviously love their chickens as much as I do.
