Rooster Comb bleeding from frost bite I think??? - Page 4

post #31 of 36
My rooster has a black frostbitten comb too. I'm in south Louisiana so I didn't think I had to worry about this. The tips were black after a 27 degree night we had a few weeks ago, but the last 2 nights have been cold again and it's spread down to most of his comb. He's too mean to let me do anything about it. He attacks us to protect his girls. We are going to cull him after we hatch another batch of chicks (he is a daddy to 5 who hatched yesterday and today), but I hope he isn't in a lot of pain from the frostbite before that. My 4 hens have no sign of frostbite on their combs.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Can you post a picture? Frostbitten combs are very painful, and can bleed easily if hit on feeders or pecked by othe chickens. Coconut oil can be dabbed on gently, but , Neosporin ointment, Vetericyn wound spray, or BluKote can also be used. Here is some good reading:
