    One of my three barred rock pullets has grow bright red combs and wattles that look like they have a light chalky coat, she is often leaving the flock and when she does she makes a very loud "BOK!" In the morning before I leave the house she sits in the nest box and does nothing. What does this behavior of my 20 week old pullet mean?
