    These are 2 different roosters. One I've had a little over a month and the other is new. The new one had this black stuff on his comb and i now notice my older rooster does as well. Of course they are in seperate coops. None of my hens have it...any idea what it may be? Thx in advance [​IMG]

    or dirt?

    it looks like blood to me, and where it is only affecting the roosters and no hens [​IMG]

    thats my guess, but could be wrong
