    Hello There ! I'm a new member and l look forward to much learning on this forum. I have a concern about a couple of my hens. It seems that they are loosing pigment in the reds around their eyes. Anyone know what this is and what I need to do about it ? They seem healthy and happy, just loosing color. I know this could possibly be something bad, but , have not found any info on anything like this on any chicken sites. I would truly appreciate anyones help.

    I have 11 assorted hens, 2 roosters, 5 new chicks and 7 more on the way ! I've been raising chickens for about 3 years now without many problems. We have a happy little "farm" with all these chickens, 3 african pygmy goats and a pot belly pig !

    Welcome to BYC!

    Can you take a closer photo of the eye, ear and comb area?

    Have you check to see if there are any lice/mites?
    Is it powdery like a fungus?
