    We have six chickens: three silver laced and three golden laced wyandottes. Today was nice weather so we let them out of their run and my wife noticed white spots on the comb of one of the silver. She is the only one with these white spots.
    Another silver has some blood on her comb. The golds are the queens of the pen and they often peck at the silvers while eating. I am just wondering how much I need to worry about this.
    I am a new poster so I cannot post my photos. If you would like to see them, let me know and I can send them to you.

    Thanks!

    I really don't think you have to worry too much. Those spots could be from the others pecking on them. Maybe others have other ideas, but I wouldn't worry too much.

    Are you talking about the white spots? We have no clue what that is about.
