    My Rhode Island Red Rooster has some black mildew looking stuff on part of his comb. His appetite is great and he seems perfectly healthy otherwise. Do I need to worry about the rest of the flock? Thanks for your help.

    I live in south texas and it hasn't been cold enough for frostbite. I'll take a picture today if I can.

    Is it cold where you live? It could be frostbite.

    Welcome to BYC!!!
    Was he outside in a hard freeze? It could be frostbite. Pics would help.
