    My favorite rooster
    Last winter my Dominique rooster's comb got frostbite on it
    It healed up after a few weeks in isolation
    Now it has a shin to it instead of the dull skin.
    The hens will not leave it alone
    They peck at it untill it bleeds, I take him out untill that heals, and then put him back in,only to be tortured again.
    Any suggestions ????
