Chicken Sick

This could be a number of things. I'm guessing you mean comb, when you say "horn". Black is not good at all. Sounds like circulatory problem, problem regulating body temperature. With respiratory problems the black comb probably means poor blood flow through the whole body, causing general weakness. This chick should be isolated from others, given access to supplementary heat, given vitamins and electrolytes in water, and rest away from others that will pick on it. I can't tell you why this is happening, but it sounds very serious.
