Kiev's improved headgear

Today she is looking a lot more healthy with a larger, brighter (more red coloured) comb showing none of the pock marks that used to be present.

The comb of a healthy chicken (acording to my Chicken Health Encyclopedia - don't laugh!) should be bright full and waxy. I think this better describes Kiev's comb now than when she arrived.

Maybe that's why she's not so grumpy and 'savage' anymore!

I think the comb becomes more red when a hen is laying eggs.
