My 6 month old speckled sussex is at the bottom of the pecking order but I'm not sure if it applies. Her comb and earlobes have gradually been turning white and after a close inspection tonight, I can see that they are hardening up where it is white. It seems to bother her if I touch it. Her wings have been a little droopy, but she is acting totally normal and eating like a pig. Does anyone know what this is? I don't have a picture yet. She is sleeping right now and I don't want to disturb the peace in the coop with a camera and flash.
