Hi guys, this is a bit of a medical question. One of my chickens combs goes from very pale to normal red every few minutes on and off. Any ideas? Overall she’s a healthy Bantam who eats, drinks and is lively.

“The comb and wattles function in thermoregulation; blood circulating from the comb and the wattles helps the bird lose heat during hot weather. The comb is also used in mate-assessment in some poultry species.” So maybe just body temp changing? Not a pro just taking a guess

Thanks mate, it might be. It’s a bit of a mystery
