Yesterday it was -5 to -10. The chickens wanted out in their run and I let them out to do that. I opened the pop door. I've got hay down in the run. Pine shavings in the coop. (these might be getting some frosty layers in them). We had -22 F this morning. I did put a heat lamp in the coop last night anticipating this extreme in temperature.The coop was -4 when I opened the door this morning to feed, water and clean. I kept the pop door closed today. This morning I noticed a slightly larger Pad on one of my Rooster's toes, but had to get to work. When I came home for lunch 4 hours later I noted while he was scratching at the BOSS on the coop floor shavings that the toe was larger in general and not splaying out like it usually does when he scratches and brought him up to the house. It didn't "set right" on the counter and it was paler, lighter yellow, and definitely larger than the same toe on the other foot. Ugh, not afraid of slightly black tips on his comb any more, I dreaded this. Freezing of toes and feet. I'm not sure why he didn't lift it to warm it or to go up on the roost if his feet were cold. He's got a nice 2x4 to roost on cozily with all his hens. What I did was run some luke warm water in the laundry tub and let him wade in that for about 5 minutes. I then took him out, dried his feet. Sat down with him and took some vaseline and started massaging his foot from the pad down to the toe. For about 10 minutes I did this. At the end of the massage he was curling that toe around my finger quite strongly. This was encouraging and the color seemed alot better. I debated keeping him in tonight as it will be colder even tonight. But I did place him on the roost next to the heat lamp (which I know he wasn't near last night). I know it would be less stressful for him to sleep in the coop than the house. Plan for the morning: toss and deepen the pine shavings on the floor again. Another bale of hay for the run. (but tomorrow they definitely will stay in the coop with the cold cold temps we'll be having.) And another massage of the toe, no matter how it looks. Anybody else dealt with frozen toes or feet out there? Can you add anything to my current treatment plan? I like this Roo alot. I actually need him for my flock. I'd hate for this to happen to him.
