So I went to my 4H meeting today and a little girl brought her rooster for me to look at. Apparently for the last couple days he's been hobbling around and can't seem to move his toes. They're a black-ish color and hard to the touch. Since I haven't ever seen this before I told her I'd look into it and let her know. Anyone know what could be wrong?

he doesn't have to be out in the cold to get frost bite. moisture inside the coop will cause frost bite more often, if they are blk then it's at the end of it and soon they will probably fall off. depending on how many of his toes are affected will determine if he'll be able to walk and get around.
