The main coop with over half of my flock is much warmer. It is also constructed opposite. The roosts are on the short end of the building and the ventilation and peak are at the other end of the building. It is also insulated. I did not have any trouble last winter, and could keep water from freezing in the coop until the single digits. My concern is breaking quarantine.

I'm a huge fan of quarantine. Since he already has frostbite, can you move him to a warmer space like a cellar or garage?

Thanks all for your replies earlier!
Air bubbles are looking okay so far, So on the 19th day for the first egg I'll go into lock down. Hopefully it isn't in a hurry!

This Saturday I have jap quail going into lockdown, and then directly after I have the orpingtons! It's nice and busy hatching wise and I love it!

If I had pictures of him you guys would know why I am worried. Like most of his breed he has a big comb and waddles. The top half of his comb has turned dark. A lot of his comb and one waddle are swollen. The waddle is a quarter inch thick the entire bottom half. That is the left waddle which based on where he roosts is by the east window.

Personally, I would either bring inside to basement, cellar, garage, somewhere warmer or  break quarantine. He came from NPIP flock owned by very reputable person.

I agree. I am going to cage him in the main coop for a few days since I won't be able to watch his interaction with the two cockerels in the coop till Saturday and he has to be hurting. I can't handle it getting worse. I feel horrible enough.

By the way, for a non-native English speaker not using translation software, you do exceedingly well with our language; vastly better than a lot of graduated Americans born here. I just wanted you to know that your efforts are applauded and appreciated.
X lots!

They had all been moving and rocking until today. I only witnessed 2 of them moving. Totally normal? Or should I be worried? I mean, I am worried 😬😬😬 but should I stop!?! No pips, no peeping in shell. Also I had read in the incubation thread to keep the temp at 98-98.5 degrees for the last three days. I have a still air, should I bump it to 99-99.5? Thanks in advance!

The problem with blankets are twofold. Temp can rise too high and you may inhibit oxygen.

Incandescent lights generate heat but are prone to failure when they cycle on and off too frequently. They all have a duty cycle that causes them to fail - at the most inappropriate time. If you still want to use your screw in fixtures, you an switch to a ceramic heat emitter.
I prefer metallic heat elements that last much longer. You can still use some type of lamp in the circuit if you want to determine when power is being applied but you can get away with an LED or 7 watt incandescent.
Agree with the top quote. I was messsing with a grammar checker for fun, and it "dinged" me because the words I used were above 5th grade reading level. I couldn't believe my eyes....

Thank you very much. I've got quite a bit to tinker with before my next hatch now....

I know what you mean- My roo had the exact thing happen when it went down to -30. He lost nearly all of his wattle on one side, and completely on the other side.

Looked pretty bad, but I just kept him in the house till the dead part shriveled up....
