    Sorry if this is in the wrong spot i hope it isnt. I have heard of using plain vaseline but i just bought some for myself that has cocoa butter in it too so i was wondering if it was safe to use on there combs. My roos comb is dry and flaky. [​IMG]
    Thanks

    They will not only shine but smell good to boot.

    Go for it. I don't see how it could hurt it.

    Quote:I went to your home page. Your birds ARE pampered. You have alot of Cochin Silkie crosses. I have Cochins and I love their personalities. Why did you chose to have CxSs?

    Not only will it protect, it will moisturize and gently massage the comb.... [​IMG]
