    I justed noticed today that my Silver Lakenvelder had bloated wattles. Do I need to treat this? Will it pass on to my other flock members? What can I do?

    Yea, I'm worried about her. I don't think it was swelled yesterday.

    Okay. Is it cold where you are? I think that frostbite causes bloated wattles. Not sure, but here is a thread to bloated wattles. I dunno if it's the same case as you, but hopefully you'll find a way to treat her!!! Sorry that I'm not giving such great advice.

    Thanks. That helped. :) It's not to cold where I live, but it is cold in the morning and usually at night.
