    I'm not sure but the best way is prevention. Keep her warm, in a draft free but well ventilated coop.

    You think you got problems... I have two white leghorns with the most floppiest combs and I live in Alaska. I am going to coat their combs with tons of Vaseline. If I thought they would keep them on, I'd crochet them some little hats. This first winter ought to be interesting. Good luck to you and your leghorns.
