    i think one of my girls might have some frost bite but i have no idea what it really looks like. her comb isn't as red as the other two are (but it could have been like this all along and i just didn't notice). she seems fine and happy so i am just leaving her alone, is that ok?

    here are some pics of mild-ish frostbite....from what i have been told, depending on the severity, it turns yellow before black..

    There is not much you can do for frostbite once your chickens get it, you can't exactly reverse the damage. It will heal over time and watch for s/s of infection such as green discharge, very swollen or smelly.
