    Our roo has a bit of frostbite on his wattles. Got wet when he got a drink and got frostbitten last week. Poor guy. Now that it is black and starting to swell, what should I do for pain, reduce swelling, etc...?

    Thanks

    The best thing you could have done for your cock is to have dubbed him to avoid this situation. As it is they will just turn black and sluff off to the point where there is no frostbite. saladin
