    My speckled Sussex is experiencing her first winter, She in the only one with pale feet. Her feet today are purple, I am very concern about this. Its 19 degrees and frigid wind. She and the others are mainly staying in the coop with a lot of bedding. I do have the coop door open so that they can go in the run. Anyone experienced this?

    I'll try to get pictures tomorrow. She just kept lift one foot at a time. I added a lot of shavings and closed off there coop early since no one wanted to venture out. It did look like poor circulation is happening to her feet.
