    This boy seems to think that he likes to sleep out in the run with his 8 hens when it is snowing they just lay down and sleep, they have a perfectly good coop that they wont use even in the day if I'm lucky i get an egg in the coop...

    anyway does he have frostbite from being a chicken....

    we covered his comb and wattles in Vaseline before we put him back out, but first i was bored so.....[​IMG]
    he was wearing a superman cape...

    He does look FANTASTIC in red! Oh, and it does look like a touch of frostbite, my girls got some in this bitter cold and I'm using vaseline now.

    Yup. A very mild case of frostbite. He's going to lose some of his points, but he will still be beautiful.

    Good luck.
