I like that stuff on combs and also for respiratory infections. From drugs.com: Active Ingredient(s): Made with 3.3% (v-v) alcohol U.S.P. The mixture contains Canada balsam, camphor, oil origanum, oil rosemary, blended in a corn oil base.
What's the name of the product, and from what company?
Fred, how old?
Do these look like White Rocks to you? 1930s:
If the hen had been in contact with another rooster before she was in the Cream Legbar pen -- even as much as a month before -- that could be it.
PEI Chicken, your birds are beautiful, as well as their coop and your whole place.
There are imperfections in every line. It's such a new breed here, and with a new club in the process of making a specific, coherent, and understandable Standard of Perfection, that I wouldn't worry overmuch at present about variations in particular lines. There is a whole lot of variation in the North American Cream Legbar population. It will take awhile for it to settle out. Learn what you can, watch the breed develop, and most of all, enjoy your fabulous Cream Legbars. :-)
This picture is going straight to the husband. I don't want a sable, a '54 convertible, a yacht, or a diamond mine. Just a chicken pen.
Mid-Michigan, historically cold winter with a good number of nights below 0 Fahrenheit. Uninsulated, well-ventilated coop. CL rooster worst hit, losing all points and part of blade. About half the hens with combs having very petite points lost the top millimeter of some of their points. The non-CL, large single-combed rooster had no damage. His comb was thinner than the CL rooster's comb.
re: cold tolerance -- would you like the responses on this thread, in an email, or on the club website?
