Hi Stephen, lovely photo - I have 3 bluebelles that are like your darker one. Just one question - I noticed that your bluebelles have darkened combs, 2 of mine have too and I thought there was something wrong (someone said they had blackhead) so i wormed them, but looking at your picture it seems to be a normal thing. Is it?

the darkened comb were entirely natural and as far as I know indicative of nothing untoward.

Blackhead is a protozoan disease of the intestine and usually affects turkeys, chickens are carriers but usually immune to it's effects

My bluebelles were very dark - combed when I got them at about 16weeks but as they came into lay they turned the same bright red as most normal breeds.

Thanks for that, after battling with cocci, twice, I was beginning to think my chickens were just going to get one thing after another. I got them at 16 weeks and their combs were pink, they are now red but with dark patches. They are all laying, and eating and drinking, so I guess i don't have too much to worry about. Except of course this lousy weather - if this rain keeps up much longer I can see my chickens growing webbed feet :lol: . When I work out how to post a piccie I will put one on of my three gorgeous girls.

We have one Bluebelle hen, called Blue (how original)!!!
She is a big heavy girl but lays tiny eggs! Very pretty, anyone who comes to the garden say "ooh shes nice".
But she isnt too friendly, likes her space but is eggselent (ha ha) with any new girls we have introduced.

My two are really friendly when I go in the enclosure Lavender waits for me to stroke her. Bluebell won't let me touch her but she will stand at my feet and look at me when I talk to her, she also has a habbit of getting under my feet and nearly tripping me up lol
