Frostbite

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My banty roo got frostbite on his comb this winter, and it has started to heal, but I was wondering if there were any things I could do to help it heal faster. I have never had this problem before because I only have hens with pea combs.Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Do you have photos?

Is it blistered or healed over?

 

If it is healed over and you want to put something on it you can apply some plain neopsorin or vetericyn spray. I have found that applying something like neosporin to  combs/wattles is easier if you use a q-tip - takes a little more time, but you can target the area you want easier.

Most of the time, depending on how much damage the frostbite caused, it will heal on it's own, but you want to monitor it to make sure there is no signs of infection, pus, oozing, etc.

I will try to get some pics tomorrow, but it is black on the very tips and a little bit of it is yellow below that before it turns to its normal red color.
Thanks for the tips!
