    One of our 3 Araucanas has black spots on her comb. It's been very cold here at night lately -- 30 and below -- and I'm thinking it's frostbite. Could that be right?

    either its frostbite or mites... mites are individual black dots(Very small) and frostbite is solid black.. could you perhaps take a picture?
